2011 Electricity: A review of South Africa's electricity industry (PDF Report)


The brief reprieve offered to South Africa's electricity sector by the global slowdown served more to engender a false sense of electricity security than to facilitate the roll-out of additional power generation capacity, and Eskom has begun warning that the system is now facing new vulnerabilities. This report examines the state of South Africa's electricity industry and examines issues such as the current state of the country's electricity supply, investment in generation capacity and funding.
