Sasol publishes update on renewable power integration
JOHANNESBURG – Sasol has committed to reduce its absolute Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from South African operations by at least 30% by 2030, off a 2017 baseline. Renewable power is a key lever towards Sasol’s GHG emission reduction, as part of its transition towards a more sustainable product portfolio.
Sasol South Africa Limited (SSA) and Msenge Emoyeni Wind Farm (Pty) Ltd (Msenge) have signed a long-term PPA for the supply of 69MW of wind powered renewable power to its Sasolburg operations.
This is key in achieving the first production of green hydrogen generated from renewable energy sources at Sasolburg and progressing its ambition to lead the development of a green hydrogen economy in Southern Africa. The renewable capacity is anticipated to be operational within the first quarter of CY24.
In addition, as part of the decarbonisation of our Southern African value chain, Sasol and Air
Liquide have signed two long-term PPA’s with Enel Green Power for the supply of a total capacity of 220MW of wind powered renewable power to Sasol’s Secunda operations.
The projects are expected to be operational in 2025. The concluded agreements are the first as part of a joint procurement initiative with Air Liquide and demonstrates Sasol’s commitment to procuring 1200MW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.
