Abstract

Highlighting the poverty in the rural areas of South Africa, the paper looks at the country's energy resources, relating them to rural energy consumption patterns.  The paper discusses the costs of grid electrification in the rural areas, emphasizing that renewable energy resources could play a larger role in supplying energy to these areas.  It mentions the formation of an independent company, RS (Pty) Ltd, to co-ordinate and finance a renewable energy implementation programme in South Africa and which will, it is hoped, offer opportunities for other business partnerships, locally and from overseas.
