At the time of going to print with this edition of ESI Africa, South Africa was in a tailspin after Eskom’s chief executive, Brian Molefe, made the dramatic statement that the state-owned power utility would not sign any power purchase agreements post bid window round 4.5 of the REIPPP programme. This rude awakening, after the renewable energy market was lulled into a semblance of security through the Department of Energy’s IPP auction programme, has brought about considerable debate in all quarters of the electricity supply industry.
Online Version
Regardless of how the ‘Eskom versus renewable energy IPPs’ story pans out, utilities and municipalities will continue in their endeavours to provide quality electricity supplies to the general population.
