In October 2013, Project 90 by 2030 hosted an international conference outside Cape Town for NGOs from Brazil, India and South Africa to initiate South-South collaboration regarding Renewable Energy policy.
Ten delegates working for civil society organizations from each country got together to elaborate and visualise on what a Just Energy transition can look like, particularly in a context of climate change and predicted environmental degradation. Their focus was on strategizing for better policies and implementation of renewable energy.
In this video you will see what some of the issues around energy for the global south are and what we would like to see for the future.

LED (light-emitting diode) light bulbs are now becoming an even more practical lighting solution. On average, about a dozen watts from these energy-efficient LED bulbs provides the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent. This makes it so you can save on electricity without scrimping on the amount of light you have. Additionally, these lights shine their full brightness as soon as you turn them on. Gone are the days of searching for your shoes in the dark closet as the CFL bulb slowly warms up.
