Webinar recording: Market review on wheeling and electricity trading in Southern Africa

Duration: 60 minutes

Wheeling is a scalable solution to creating a stable electricity supply industry within the southern African region.

While wheeling does not necessarily mean that the electrons entering the transmission network at point A will be used at point B, it is a solution to balancing the energy from the generator with the end-user load.  

Now that South Africa’s Department of Mineral Resources and Energy will be gazetting the amendment to Schedule 2 of the country’s Electricity Regulation Act that pushes the self-generation threshold up to 100MW, it is timeous to review how wheeling operates and what changes can be anticipated within the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP).
