Smart Electricity Planning report

The Electricity Governance Initiative believes that an electricity planning approach is called for that has the capacity to make the necessary adjustments timeously, that seeks to address key socio-economic challenges for improved livelihoods and that sets out to protect dwindling ecosystems services.

This report aims to provide a fresh look at South Africa’s electricity demand, reviews available energy conservation and efficiency technologies for key economic sectors and seeks to debunk the outdated belief that South Africa’s electricity supply can only be satisfied affordably and reliably using utility-scale coal and nuclear power.
