Latest KfW News

South Africa is litmus test for climate solidarity

Sep 15, 2021

Context News South African state power utility Eskom is talking to development institutions like the World Bank and Germany’s KfW in the run-up November’s COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow, according to a July 30 company presentation. It wants to raise $10 billion to help it shut down its fleet of coal-fired plants by 2050 and switch to renewable energy, Reuters reported on June 30. Eskom generates 90% of South Africa’s electricity, almost exclusively from coal, making it Africa’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. Its initial proposal is to secure concessional debt finance to build 8 gigawatts of non-coal-fired power. Half that is to come from natural gas. Wind and solar make up the majority of the rest. Source: REUTERS/Mike Hutchings Cooling towers are pictured at a coal-based power station owned by state power utility Eskom in Duhva, South Africa, February 18, 2020. Related Links
