African local governments step up to Earth Hour City Challenge
Participating secondary municipalities in South Africa avail of a workshop on tools for mainstreaming renewable energy. These workshops are also extended to partners in the local sector as well as neighbouring municipalities. Additionally, both KwaDukuza and George municipalities will receive further technical assistance of their choice, in the form of either: retrofit pre-feasibility study, solar resource maximization tool training, or a financial assessment on revenue impact.
On the global competition front, a video celebrating the City of Cape Town and City of Tshwane’s journey as returning EHCC South African finalists was released in time for Earth Hour. It features selected flagship projects, with the view of inspiring climate initiatives that are grounded in local development.
These activities will be captured in a special upcoming newsletter. In the meantime click on the links below to learn about each local government’s climate actions:
