SAWEA is the not-for- profit, industry organisation representing the wind industry in South Africa. Our members include both national and international entities active in the entire wind energy supply chain.
Community involvement and socio economic development have emerged as key issues in the success of the South African wind industry moving forward. The ERC at UCT have been very pro-active in furthering debate and learning in these fields and recently hosted a workshop that was well attended by key role players. The ERC team were kind enough to adapt their report on the workshop into the blog post below. The full report is available to members here. We thank Holle Wlokas, Leonie Joubert and Louise Tait for sharing their work with us.
