Emvelo, a leading South African blackowned green economy resources company and its partners, have initiated a unique large-scale Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) development at Karoshoek near Upington in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.

The overarching vision for the Karoshoek Solar Thermal Valley Park is to contribute meaningfully to the renewable energy and green economy targets of the South African Government in a manner that simultaneously enhances socioeconomic development in the Northern Cape and, specifically, in the //Khara Hais Municipality where the project is located. Accordingly, the goal is to develop and operate the best-practice CSP plants at Karoshoek, capable of generating 1.1GW of round-the-clock, clean and dispatchable solar thermal electricity.
