Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions
The information presented in the NAMA database is collected from publically available information on NAMAs and NAMA related activities. It does not represent official submissions and may not reflect the priorities of the country government.
|Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings Programme (EEPBP)
|The objective of the NAMA is to identify and implement energy efficiency measures in buildings of the public sector in a consistent and replicable manner.
|South African Renewables Initiative (SARI)
|Renewable energy (unspecified)
|The South African Renewables Initiative aims to mobilise domestic and international funding, and sector expertise, to support South Africa to scale-up renewable energy.
|Sustainable Settlement Facility
|Establish subsidised and gap housing in South Africa as low carbon, removing significant future demand from the coal dominated South African grid.
|Passenger Modal Shift from Road to Rail – The Gautrain Case
|The NAMA covers the modal shift of private passenger vehicles to the Gautrain electric rail directly, or through the feeder bus system.
Feasibility studies for NAMAs
|Rollout of electric private passenger vehicles
|The NAMA aims to produce and use private passenger electric vehicles in South Africa, with the goal of a 10% penetration of electric private passenger vehicles by 2015. The objective is to decrease GHG emissions by 450 MtCO2 equivalent from 2011 to 2050. The NAMA will help to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of electric vehicles, with the potential of making a considerable contribution to the sustainability of the sector, and complementing other national climate change and transport initiatives.
