Green Technologies Stocktake Study – TIA001/2024

The Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) is established as a schedule 3A public entity under the provisions of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) (Act 1 of 1999, as amended by Act 29 of 1999). The Agency’s mandate is derived from the provisions of the Technology Innovation Agency Act (No 26 of 2008),1 which establishes TIA as an agency to promote the development and exploitation, in the public interest, of discoveries, inventions, innovations and improvements. TIA’s objective is to support the state in stimulating and intensifying technological innovation to improve economic growth and the quality of life of all South Africans through the development and exploitation of technological innovations.

TIA plays a critical role in supporting the realisation of government’s vision through funding and de-risking technological innovation and through supporting the commercialisation of public-funded intellectual property, with a special focus on bio-based technologies. TIA also supports the process of knowledge utilisation, the diffusion of existing technologies and grassroots innovators in vulnerable and marginalised communities, thereby contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

TIA also provides science, engineering and technology (SET) and enterprise development support to SMMEs and co-operatives, particularly to those that are black-owned, black women-owned, youth-owned or located in underserved provinces. From a regional and international perspective, TIA plays a key facilitation role through its collaboration with research and innovation institutions across the continent and beyond through joint technology development programmes and more.

The Presidential Climate Commission (PCC) is a multistakeholder body established by The Presidency which includes representation from government, business, labour, non-governmental organisations, community-based organisations and research organisations. The PCC advises government and stakeholders on South Africa’s climate change response and the long-term transition to a climate resilient and low carbon economy and society.
