In this presentation the concept for a 100% renewables-based South African energy system will be outlined. All dimensions (primary energy, demand side, storage and hydrogen) and all sectors (electricity, heat, transport) will be covered and the high-level map of how a 100% renewables-based energy system would look like will be presented. This presentation shall be seen as the canvas on which all relevant parts for
such a system are outlined. It is not a detailed feasibility study yet, but it’ll stimulate thinking in all relevant dimensions.
