The South African Board of National Research and Development (R&D) Strategy states that for sustainable development to take place, rural and urban communities should have access to innovations that accelerate development and provide new and effective solutions compared to those utilised previously. To this end, the challenge for South Africa and NEPAD, which is captured in the Department of Science and Technology (DST)10-year innovation plan in terms of searching for energy security, is to develop fully the available energy resources and to promote innovative, competitive, equitable and sustainable energy systems for various economic and social sectors across South Africa and the continent.
