German - South Arican collaboration: EUR 75 million for (renewable) energy

Germany has dedicated € 75-million to develop renewable energy and energy generation in South Africa, Germany's Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Dirk Niebel said on Friday.
Speaking at the Union Buildings in Pretoria after the Sixth Session of the South Africa-Germany Binational Commission, Niebel said the development policy was to become more "effective and more visible".

"It will not only be reflective in the development fund of €112,5-million, but also reflective with the €75-million put aside to enhance energy supply and facilitate growth and poverty," he said.

Germany's development policy endeavours to improve living conditions in partner countries.

As South Africa was largely dependent on coal for energy, Niebel said the advancement of renewable energy was "a step forward".
