    onshore and offshore sites Drilling may affect ocean and terrestrial habitats The threat of oil spills exists Nuclear Nuclear power is generated using uranium or plutonium Uranium is a highly radioactive material that needs to be dug up and processed generating a huge amount of waste in the process Before uranium can be used in nuclear reactors it needs to be enriched Nuclear reactors generate heat through a process of nuclear fission The steam generated from this heat drives turbines and generators Most nuclear plants are situated along the coast so that the sea can be used as a cooling mechanism instead of cooling towers Pros with nuclear energy countries can rely less on fossil fuels and thus limit hazardous atmospheric pollutants Nuclear plants are considered to be one of the more cost effective alternatives to fossil fuels The energy output is great Cons the excavation of uranium and plutonium causes devastation to the surrounding environment The waste from these excavations is also radioactive If these are stored in a poor condition they lead to the contamination of surface and groundwater Vast resources have be spent on safety mechanisms and precautions at nuclear plants If harmful radioactive materials are released this could cause tremendous negative impacts on the health of people plants and animals The meltdown of the nuclear reactor in Chernobyl Ukraine in 1986 is listed as the world s worst nuclear accident which killed 30 people and affected thousands across Europe with regard to health populations becoming prone to cancers socio economically and politically as well as environmentally Nuclear energy is a hot topic that has always generated intense debate Find out more on the websites of the World Information Service on Energy World Nuclear Association the Chernobyl Legacy and Greenpeace RENEWABLES Renewable sources of energy such as solar wind geothermal biomass and tidal are increasingly used in face of diminishing fossil fuel resources and concerns over their impacts on the environment While the cost of renewable energy technologies remains high increased demand can lead to economies of scale and a wider deployment especially in developing countries where energy demand is increasing and many renewable resources are plentiful Read more about the different sources of renewable energy below and explore more about the topic on the websites of the Sustainable Energy Society of Southern Africa the World wide Information System for Renewable Energy WIRE the Information Gateway for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency REEGLE and the European Renewable Energy Council or for Portuguese speaking readers on the Portal das Energias Renováveis The IEA s Fact sheet about Renewables in Global Energy Supply provides a good overview of the current renewable energy situation Wind Wind energy is one of the fastest growing sources of renewable energy sources around the world Wind machines use blades to collect the wind s kinetic energy Windmills work because they slow down the speed of the wind The wind flows over the airfoil shaped blades causing lift and making them turn The blades are connected to a drive shaft that turns an electric generator to produce electricity There are two types of wind machines horizontal axis the majority and vertical axis wind machines One wind machine can produce 1 5 to 4 0 million kilowatthours kWh of electricity a year That is enough electricity to power 150 400 homes Wind turbines start operating at wind speeds of 4 to 5 metres per second Wind speed increases with altitude and over open areas with no windbreaks Therefore good sites for wind plants are the tops of smooth rounded hills open plains or shorelines and mountain gaps that produce wind funneling Pros wind turbines have a low impact on the environment they produce only low frequency noise It is safe and produces no by products The turbines do not disturb livestock on farms and the land can continue to be used for grazing and crop production There are no interferences as in the past with television or radio frequencies Cons At times when the wind is not blowing other types of power plants must be used to generate electricity Wind turbines may have a negative effect on wild bird populations as well as a visual impact on the landscape There is also the impact on the land during construction Capital costs are high Read more about the topic on the websites of the Global Wind Energy Council the British Wind Energy Association Solar Everyday the sun gives us 20 000 times more energy than the entire planet needs This statement alone illustrates that the sun is not only the primary energy source for most living things but also a major potential for energy production Yet up until now the sun s energy has not been harnessed to its full potential thermal hot water Electricity can be produced from sunlight through direct heating of fluids to generate steam for large scale centralized electrical generation Solar hot water heaters use the sun to heat either water or a heat transfer fluid in collectors A typical system will reduce the need for conventional water heating by about two thirds High temperature solar water heaters can provide energy efficient hot water and hot water heat for large commercial and industrial facilities electric photovoltaic Electricity can also be produced from sunlight through a process called photovoltaics Photo refers to light and voltaic to voltage Thus the term describes a solid state electronic cell that produces direct current electrical energy from the radiant energy of the sun Solar cells are used to generate electricity for household power street lighting highway telephones calculators and watches water pumping and other applications passive solar energy passive solar heating cooling and daylighting are techniques that make use of the steady supply of solar energy by means of careful building design These techniques use building elements such as walls windows floors and roofs in addition to exterior building elements and landscaping to control heat generated by solar radiation Passive heating collects and stores thermal energy from direct sunlight passive cooling uses shading and generation of air flows with convection ventilation to minimise the effects of solar radiation and daylighting design optimises the use of natural daylight contributing greatly to energy efficiency Buildings can incorporate design features such as large north facing windows and building materials that absorb and slowly release the sun s heat Incorporating passive solar designs can reduce heating bills as much as 50 percent Pros solar energy production is safe renewable clean pollution waste and noise free It can be used on a small scale for domestic and household use as well as for larger operations The area needed to build a solar plant is less than half the area needed to build a coal plant Passive systems require no additional mechanical equipment and are thus simple and require minimal maintenance Cons only slight environmental impacts are experienced with the construction of more large scale solar panels The cost of generating solar energy is much higher than that of fossil fuels although costs are decreasing Reduction of costs and increase in efficiency becomes progressively more important as the world s developing nations are situated in regions that receive vast amounts of solar radiation For more information on how the suns energy is harvested see the chapter on solar energy of The Energy Story or explore the Green Building Geothermal Geothermal energy originates from natural processes beneath the earth s surface and is recovered as steam and hot water Underground hot rocks heat water to produce steam This steam is accessed through drilling and exploration which is then purified and used to drive turbines and electric generators Pros Geothermal energy does not produce any pollution and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect Power stations do not have much impact on the environment No fuel is needed Energy may be needed to run pumps but this can be taken from the energy being generated Cons One of the negative aspects of geothermal energy concerns geography and geology There are not many regions where a geothermal plant can be built as hot rocks of a suitable type at a suitable depth need to be found Sometimes a geothermal site may run out of steam perhaps for decades which has to do with geological processes Hazardous gases and minerals may come up from underground and can be difficult to safely dispose of Visit the International Geothermal Association for information on the use of geothermal energy around the globe Tidal According to the British Wind Energy Association some studies suggest that the marine environment stores enough energy in the form of heat currents waves and tides to meet total world wide demand for power many times over But although the energy supply is dependable and abundant converting it into useful electrical power is not easy and there are few technologies that have gone as far as full construction and testing One of the methods used is a tidal barrage in which a dam or barrage is built across a river estuary When the tide goes in and out the water flows through tunnels in the dam The ebb and flow of the tides can be used to turn a turbine or it can be used to push air through a pipe which then turns a turbine Offshore turbines are also utilized and they are structured much like an underwater wind farm This method is much more cost effective to build and does not have the environmental problems that a tidal barrage would bring Pros it produces no atmospheric waste It needs no fuel It is not expensive to maintain Tides are predictable Offshore turbines and vertical axis turbines do not have a large environmental impact and are less costly to maintain but can be expensive to build Cons A barrage across an estuary is very expensive to build and affects a very wide area the environment is changed for many miles upstream and downstream Many birds rely on the tide uncovering the mud flats so that they can feed There are few suitable sites for tidal barrages And it only provides power for around 10 hours each day when the tide is actually moving in or out Turbidity salinity and sediment movements become affected The British Wind Energy Association has useful information on wave and tidal energy Biomass Biomass energy relates to the energy created by organic matter Biomass is formed when the sun shines on plants and trees Previously wood used to be the main source of biomass but today other sources are also used such as the waste from industries and cities Biogas or methane is produced from the decomposition of biomass and sewage The capturing of this gas is useful because of its effect within the greenhouse effect Pros utilising waste materials to produce energy reduces the impact that their treatment or disposal of would otherwise have on the environment The fuel tends to be cheap Places less demand on the Earth s resources Cons Collecting the waste in sufficient quantities can be difficult Fuel is still being burnt so this is still generating greenhouse gases See the chapter on biomass of The Energy Story for more information Using Energy Wisely idea jpg You can get six times the reductions in carbon dioxide by investing in energy saving rather than nuclear power Niels Meyer So why not start saving Here s a few helpful energy saving techniques to use in our homes and businesses from the South African Department of Mineral and Energy and The Energy Book for Urban Development in South Africa Useful Tips in the home at work building or renovating elsewhere on the web In the Home Reduce the temperature of your geyser to around 55 degrees Whilst cooking the size of the pot should match the size of the stove plate this can save you up to 25 on the electricity you use while cooking Close the door every time you take things out of the fridge and also check that it seals properly Try to boil only the water you need instead of boiling a full pot or kettle every time Close windows and doors when the heater is on Replace electric stoves with gas stoves Insulate your geyser by wrapping newspapers old blankets or other insulating materials around it and the hot water pipes Switch off lights fans computers and other energy consuming appliances when you leave the room Turn off all stand by modes every time you leave the house and before going to bed Use energy saving light bulbs They last much longer and use less electricity Use renewable energy where possible such as installing a solar water heater At Work Install efficient lighting such as CFLs compact fluorescent lights They cost more than normal incandescent bulbs R30 R50 as opposed to R3 60 but last about 10 times longer and use one quarter of the electricity Switch off PCs and lights when leaving the office Implement paper reducing strategies such as recycle and re using or double sided copies If appropriate use laptop computers they consume 90 less energy than standard desktop computers If appropriate use ink jet printers they consume 90 less energy than laser printers Install ceiling and wall insulation Building or Renovating a House In increased energy efficiency can be attained by making environment conscious decisions when building or renovating homes and workplaces design houses that are compatible with the local climate of the region for example in Cape Town s Mediterranean climate building with heavyweight cavity walls and dense compact layout are suited to the wet winters and windy summers plan a house that takes best advantage of the sun build with energy efficient materials insulate ceilings install solar water heaters create good ventilation to avoid dampness rainwater can be collect off the roof and channeled

today that are still heavily reliant on fossil fuels According to the Department of Minerals and Energy 79 of primary energy in South Africa is generated through coal The country is also Africa s largest consumer of energy and the second largest energy producer see the Country Analysis In 1998 the South African Energy White Paper highlighted a number of concerns and called for a focus on actively promoting the monitoring and reduction of power generation through fossil fuels an increase in the use of renewable energy and the promotion of energy efficiency and conservation The recent crisis in energy supply to the Western Cape has given the government an increased incentive to become proactive in seeking and creating efficient dependable and sustainable ways of keeping up with the country s growing needs The crisis arose as a result of a malfunction of the Koeberg Nuclear Reactor near Cape Town As a result the Western Cape province was subject to long periods of power outages throughout the region that resulted in not only millions of Rands in losses to the economy but also major inconveniences to the population of the region This demand in power production is only set to increase during the winter months which place an increased need on energy The Western Cape government has responded to this demand in the short term by encouraging the region s population to actively conserve energy in their homes and in industry and by putting measures in place for them to do so Yet controlled power outages are still set to continue if the load is too high and it seems that energy conservation alone will not solve the problem of growing energy demand South Africa is in the process of seeking urgent alternatives There are various parties that call for the establishment of more nuclear plants amongst them ministers and politicians who say they are efficient and economical The Koeberg Nuclear Reactor has been in existence and has been operating safely for the past 21 years There are various groups that lobby against it because of the potential to be hugely destructive According to Earthlife Africa the Pebble Bed Nuclear Reactors that Eskom proposes to build in South Africa will cost over R40 billion generate only 70 full time jobs and 500 construction jobs In contrast for the same amount of money a 4300 MW wind farm would create more than 8000 jobs and generate 50 more electricity The country also has excellent renewable energy resources An experimental wind farm has been constructed in 2002 along the West Coast near Cape Town South Africa is a country blessed with favourable radiation Solar home systems can be introduced more widely that can be used for lighting water heating and appliances There are also reports of a British company hoping to harness South Africa s wave energy by establishing 3 wavepower farms Read more about the energy problem in the Western Cape on the Sustainable Energy Africa s website and News section of this

front jpg Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world according to South Africa s former President Nelson Mandela On completion of their secondary education matric many of the country s youth need to make important choices and decisions that will help to decide their future A vast majority of the matriculants are becoming aware of the importance of furthering their learning experiences with a tertiary education university college or the undertaking of short courses There is no doubt to the benefits of this decision as education opens up so many more opportunities and plays a vital role not only in the development of a person s life but in the development of a nation and a country Yet in many cases the obstacles to aspiring students may seem overwhelming low levels of income gender inequality language barriers minority status geographical isolation and the increasingly escalating costs of education are all viewed as deterring factors Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which fulfilled can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation John F Kennedy United States of Americas former President The countries of Angola Namibia and South Africa are endowed with some of the finest universities and colleges on the African continent but the question people ask is Can the youth afford tertiary education Don t lose hope because there is help at hand DLIST recognizes that there are many of you who have overlooked the opportunity to further your studies because of the lack of financial resources and the lack of readily available information on how to access the necessary funding Here DLIST provides you with information and ideas on how you can raise the financial resources you will need to finance your studies in South Africa and Namibia Hey the gates of learning are not closed to those who are financially needy The Obstacles An increasing number of people find themselves in a situation in which they are eager to further their studies in the form of a college certificate diploma a university degree or a short course but struggle to find the funding to finance their studies Generally the cost of a tertiary education is relatively high and escalating every year which makes it very difficult and increasingly challenging for lower income families to afford In addition to the cost of tuition fees there are the added costs of study materials transport books accommodation and the expenses of university life Many students finance their studies though a combination of sources that may include loans from universities or banks personal loans scholarships bursaries or through part time work In the following article we attempt to make information on funding sources available to you We have put together a fairly comprehensive list of funding opportunities and options that you may seek out we advise you on the options most suitable for your specific situation also we advise you on how to go about applying for funding and what requirements are necessary for acceptance Help is at hand Seeking a Higher Education UCT web jpg There are various types of higher education institutions that one has the option of applying to Here we give you a quick breakdown of the type of institutions to enroll at to suit your particular interests needs and lifestyle University A university degree offers one of the most recognizable forms of higher education development being credited nationally and globally A university degree is most suited to dedicated full time study and structured courses It usually takes one 3 years to complete a general degree in the fields of humanities commerce or science and somewhat longer for law engineering and health This forms the basis of your undergraduate degree after which you will have a formal qualification Often people choose to further their qualifications with postgraduate degrees such as honours and masters For a list of universities in South Africa click here For a list of universities in Namibia click here For a list of universities in Angola click here University of Technology A university of technology offers a more practical dimension to learning It focuses on providing higher quality education that places more emphasis on technology and equipping students with the necessary skills for the workplace A year of theoretical study is usually alternated with a year of practical exposure and apprenticeship at a relevant institution After 3 years of study at a technikon one receives a diploma One can then choose to further his her studies with a Bachelor of Technology B Tech degree In South Africa a universities of technology were previously called technikons Colleges Colleges are institutions that offer less accredited degrees and courses College degrees or diplomas sometimes hold less weight than those from universities or technikons when job hunting One has the option of studying full time or part time as well as a choice between long courses and short courses Colleges are independent and offer more specialized training such as teachers training colleges nursing colleges or advertising computer or business colleges FET college Further Education and Training FET Colleges are a result of the merger of former technical colleges Two types of FET colleges exist in South Africa which are the Public and the Private FET colleges Courses offered by different FET colleges may include tourism engineering Information and Communication Technology ICT construction welding tool making hair dressing jewellery design hospitality studies and are not limited to these only Short Courses All higher education institutions offer some short courses for those who want less intensive studies or who want to further their knowledge on certain job related issues They also all offer part time study for those who also have other priorities while at the same time wanting to pursue a further education Bursaries diploma web long jpg What is a Bursary Different Types of Bursaries How to Apply for a Bursary What are the Requirements for Applying for a Bursary What a Bursary A bursary is a grant of money that is given to a student by a company or organization to fund their tertiary education Bursaries are provided to students who have either high academic results or are considered to be in need of financial assistance Bursaries do not need to be repaid The only case of repayment occurs if the student has failed the degree or course Different Types of Bursaries Bursaries may be established through major private companies government departments the tertiary institution to which the student is applying or academic foundations Certain sources of bursaries cover the full cost of tuition while others contribute to a portion of the tuition fees Private companies and government departments In the case of private companies and government departments most of them cover the full tuition costs and surplus for transport needs and study materials They also have the expectation that the student will be employed at the company for a predetermined amount of time after the student has qualified This may have its benefits as it not only secures funding for studies but also the student is assured of a job once they graduate Organizations and academic foundations In the case of assistance from organizations and academic foundations the monetary subsidiary is sometimes less than that of major private companies They may contribute a small amount toward the tuition fees during each year of study Tertiary institution Bursaries through the institution at which the student will be studying is particularly competitive and is usually awarded to students with outstanding academic or sporting performance and potential How to Apply for a Bursary Firstly you have to gain a good understanding of the course you want to pursue Once you know what course you want to undertake and which field it falls under then go about finding the company which best suites your course For example if you want to study engineering the best companies to solicit bursaries from would be Eskom Nampower De Beers etc for Information and Communication Technology ICT try firms such as Telkom Telecom Namibia Vodacom etc After ascertaining whether these companies do offer bursaries you can then call their human resources department to enquire about the bursaries All companies have different procedures in some cases bursary seekers have to call and ask for application forms and in others they write letters of interest and motivation in applying for a bursary What are the Requirements for Applying for a Bursary The best option is to contact the organization or company that you are applying to In many cases the awarding of bursaries has certain requirements For instance the student has to be a SADC country resident may have to undertake a period of employment for the company on the completion of the course or degree have to have at least a matriculation or equivalent qualification etc Scholarships pc web long jpg What is a Scholarship Different Types f Scholarships How to Apply for a Scholarship What are the Requirements for Applying for a Scholarship What is a scholarship A scholarship is financial assistance given to a student based on the various criteria It generally reflects the principles and purposes of the donor The actual monetary amount of the scholarship varies

loan has to be repaid The taking out of a student loan is one of the most utilized options for students Different Types of Loans Institutional Loans Some tertiary education centres offer student loans at preferential rates of interest Ask the Financial Aid Bureau at the university where you intend to study if the university manages a loan scheme for students Find out what the interest rate is that the education centre offers and how it expects you to repay the loan Bank Loans Most banks offer student loans at relatively attractive interest rates Student loans must be repaid once you have graduated and most banks will require some form of surety or security before they grant a student loan If you interested in applying for a student loan it is always best to approach the bank where you or the person who will sign surety for your loan already has a bank account How to Apply for a Loan Compare the options
