Do we need to continue to be like the rest of the world?

SAAEA 6 August 2012.

Why does South Africa have to continue to be like the rest of the world when we have so much sun here? Why can’t we build massive Concentrated Solar Tower projects in Namibia so that we can supply our peak demand whilst the sun is still shining in Namibia and not shining from 6pm to 8pm in South Africa. Why can’t we explore the 7GW of pumped storage available in the Lesotho mountains which is a huge potential battery for energy for Southern Africa?
