Sweden to help South Africa with clean energy

The Swedish government has promised to help South Africa develop more renewable energy sources as the two countries seek ways to to fight the devastating effects of climate change.
Briefing the media following their meeting in Tuynhuis in Cape Town on Wednesday, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and Sweden Deputy Prime Minister Maud Olofsson both committed themselves to working towards cleaner energy ahead of the climate change talks in Mexico later this year.

While South Africa relies heavily on coal for its energy, Sweden is committed to clean energy with 50% of that country's energy coming from renewable energy sources.
