The Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town, is passionate about inspiring in its visitors a love of and respect for the ocean. They are concerned about the threat that human activities have on life in the ocean and are working hard to create awareness about the issues of pollution and climate change. They are also actively taking a role to reduce their carbon emissions, save energy and promote renewable energy solutions.
In 2011 the Aquarium was selected as a Project 90 x 2030 green energy demonstration site. The first grid tied wind and solar PV system in the City of Cape Town, was installed on their roof! This was a truly a ground breaking project that is set to change the way we view energy generation and hopefully lead the way for similar green energy projects in the city.
