SAPVIA Solar PV Industry Research Report 2021

SAPVIA via the expertise of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), has commissioned a Solar PV industry jobs report. The project aims to develop a deeper understanding of jobs created in the South African Solar PV market. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to conduct a comprehensive audit of the number and type of employment opportunities, created by solar PV deployment in South Africa. These job numbers were then utilized to determine the future job creation potential of the sector for a number of different deployment scenarios. Follow the arrow to DOWNLOAD the report.

DRIVING DISTRIBUTED
GENERATION

As the representative voice of the solar PV industry, we are constantly working towards collaborating with stakeholders across the renewable energy sector to share knowledge and drive effective change. Developing the RCI industry to uptake more distributed generation in South Africa will build local competence of global standard, and accelerate the local renewable energy market.

With this in mind SAPVIA has partnered with the Minerals Council and EIUG to present a six-part series of workshops to unpack key challenges, policy/regulation structures, risks and best practices that the RCI industry faces as the integration of Solar PV becomes a viable alternative.
