Renewable Energy Festival

On Saturday the 8th of February, Cape Town held it’s first free, family friendly Renewable Energy Festival at Green Point Urban Park. As Cape Town Beach Cleanup is a green initiative, we thought it would be nice to share what the experience of the event was like with you.

From 9-5PM sessions around “How Severe is the Climate Crisis and should South Africa be Involved”, “Can Renewable Energy be a Solution to South Africa’s Energy Crises?” and “Should Renewable Energy be Socially Owned” were discussed with the public.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies, ‘Tshisa Boxes’ WWF, solar cookers and solar panels were just some of the organisations and interactive exhibitions that were being presented. A mini-film festival and local musicians also contributed to a very festive atmosphere.

It was a beautiful day out, thanks to a collaborative effort from the World Wide Fund for Nature South Africa (WWF-SA), the City of Cape Town and the Alternative Information Development Centre (AIDC) for organising. I hope it is an event that will grow in popularity and may be held more often. Renewable Energy is an avenue that needs to be explored and our society should seize the power.
