|Southern African Renewable and Alternative Energy Association (SAAEA)|
Last week, I stumbled on the most interesting, yet unexpected piece of research. Mainstream Renewable Power released its finding based on research from 18 wind and solar sites across South Africa during 2013 which showed that electricity generated from wind and solar resources closely follows South Africa’s electricity demand profile, meaning that they actually generate power at the time of day it is most needed. The research further revealed that, when combined, wind and solar generation are significant contributors to baseload power2. This research thus effectively busts one of the biggest myths created by the anti-renewables lobby: that we require coal and nuclear generation to provide for baseload demand as renewable energy sources cannot meet this demand.
