Smart Electricity Planning report

A 20-year electricity supply and implementation plan – the Integrated Resource Plan 2010 to 2030 (IRP2010) – has been devised by the South African government. It does include a limited role for renewable energy. However, old and expensive technologies are prioritised. Rather, a SMARTer electricity plan, with renewable energy as a central component, would enhance environmental quality, provide more jobs, address energy poverty and reduce capital expenditure – a road map to a better future for all South Africans.

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reviews available energy conservation and efficiency technologies for key economic sectors and seeks to debunk the outdated belief that South Africa’s electricity supply can only be satisfied affordably and reliably using utility-scale coal and nuclear power.
