Resources on the Just Energy Transition in South Africa

Author: Roz Price

This rapid review highlights and explores the literature on the just energy transition in South Africa. In simple terms, a just energy transition can be defined as where the process of shifting energy systems is made as fair and just as possible (Project 90 by 2030, 2019). However, the term is not rigidly defined and can mean different things to different people and elicits a wide range of responses depending on the contexts within which it is utilised and the interests of the groups involved. This is a vast and complex topic, with a large and growing literature base and considerable interest by donors, government, civil society organisations (CSOs) and industry in South Africa. Hence, this rapid review only provides a snapshot of the literature identified.
