Constituting the country’s new electricity roadmap to 2030, this important 2018 revision of the ‘living plan’ has been welcomed overall as a big improvement; however, industry stakeholders are not completely satisfied.
Join ESI Africa and four guest speakers tomorrow in a live online discussion <enewsspintelligent.evlink4.net/servlet/link/17197/295106/40904885/4485012> as they unpack the impact to consumers, the impact on the country’s economy, public comment already raised, and what the promulgated IRP could look like.
You can pose your questions to the expert panel including: • Jacob Mbele, Deputy Director General: Projects & Programmes, Department of Energy, South Africa • TK Pooe, Public Policy Specialist, North West University, South Africa • Sicelo Xulu, Energy Consultant, South Africa • Jesse Burton, Energy Research Centre, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Questions can be posted to the panel before and during the live webinar for possible consideration. We look forward to welcoming you and your participation. <enewsspintelligent.evlink4.net/servlet/link/17197/295106/40904885/4485051> <enewsspintelligent.evlink4.net/servlet/link/17197/295106/40904885/4485052>
