Wind Energy 'Cheap and Clean', Says Oelsner

Energy expert stresses the need for governments to invest in renewable energy

Renewable energy is past the point of no return and will be accessible at a lower cost than traditional sources, according to Herman Oelsner.

Oelsner, who is the president of the Africa Wind Energy Association, points out that the financial crisis in Europe and the United States as well as political upheaval in North Africa, deterred some from travelling there.

Speaking on the sidelines of a muted Wind Power Africa Conference & Renewable Energy Exhibition in Cape Town, argues that, "Government has realised it and that is why the bid process was introduced and we will be digging foundations by the end of the year, or early next year [2013] and a lot of turbines will go up."
