The Tyranny of Realism- to what extent is our present and future energy development constrained by the past? This is a question that our most recent report seeks to answer.

“This volume seeks to prompt balanced discussion of a number of themes, but also presents a line of argument, that there is one decision that is unequivocally and urgently required: to prioritise the deployment of renewable energy technologies in the short term, immediately and ambitiously, and increase the share of renewable resources in the energy mix as rapidly and extensively as possible into the long term”.

Smarter Energy Choices

This gallery contains 1 photos.

As you know at Project 90 we work hard (and smart too) for social change, most notably, significant changes to our lifestyles which can eventually lead to a just and sustainable future. Our day to day lifestyle choices influence our carbon, energy, water and environmental footprints and have an impact today, tomorrow and beyond. It is just as important for Goverment to make smart energy choices and Project 90 has contributed to the compilation of the SMART Electricity Planning report – which highlights an improved approach to Electricity planning in South Africa. It includes ambitious, but achievable energy conservation and efficiency targets. Robert Fischer tells us more about this piece of important research. Continue reading

The 9th of April is Family Day, so this month our theme here at Project 90 will focus around the family, giving you ideas and tips to cut carbon at home and start living a greener lifestyle. Our first story for the month is about an amazing school in Kommetjie. Sasha Wainwright, our Programme Administrator, is also a qualified pre- school teacher. She has always dreamt of a school that is holistic in its approach and has a healthy environment, teaches young people to love the earth we live on and create a space of integrity for our earth and all its creatures. She recently visited Imhoff Waldorf School in Kommetjie and foundit inspirational. Using the re-use, recycle approach, this school is an example to us all of how we really can make a difference in the world on so many levels. Continue reading

Although for many citizens in SA this is a daily reality, it is rare to see this happening in a more affluent neighbourhood. I met two amazing pioneers whose dream is to be totally water and energy self-sufficient and I was lucky enough to receive a guided tour of their incredible home. Continue reading
