In an email to the IRP 2010 stakeholders, the DOE said:
“It has been a long time coming, but here is an update on the IRP2010 process.
We have received 831 responses to our request for comments on the Draft Input Parameters and it has taken us quite some time to read and collate the comments into updated Input Parameter sheets to the modelling process. The DOE wishes to thank all those organisations and persons that submitted comments and substantiating documents to the first round of public participation.
The modelling process has commenced and the final sheets used for the modelling has been published on the website (www.doe-irp.co.za). Please ensure that you press “refresh” on the site to get the latest update. The DOE have tried to respond to the comments in the last section of each of the sheets as far as possible as well as explaining the rationale behind the final sheets. More information will be published as we go along in the process.
At this point in time, we are looking at a Draft IRP2010 to be available at the end of August, ready for public participation. The month of August will be used for inter-governmental consultation.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further queries.
