Greenpeace Africa has welcomed that President Cyril Ramaphosa"s SONA

Greenpeace Africa has welcomed that President Cyril Ramaphosa used the SONA as a platform to recognise the country’s opportunity to be at the forefront of green growth through increasing the contribution of renewable energy to the national energy mix. However, according to the organisation, achieving this is heavily dependent on creating policy certainty through the finalisation of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), and removing artificial limits to renewable energy. Greenpeace Africa is also disappointed that the president left South Africans in the dark about how much more Eskom will cost.
