    ANC's ideological energy battle - while South Africa bleeds

    The available renewable energy which Minister Gwede Mantashe said does not exist

    He obviously does not keep up with advancing technology. There is a pilot system (I think) in Upington where parabolic mirrors concentrate sunlight onto receptors that can turn water into steam to run turbines generating electricity. This technology in the US is used to heat special sands up to...
