Webinar: 25 October 2018 | South Africa IRP2018 litmus test
The South African government’s draft IRP2018 (Integrated Resource Plan), constituting the country’s new electricity roadmap to 2030, has been released for public comment.
Previous updates of the 2010 version were not promulgated resulting in an outmoded plan being used to roll out energy and power infrastructure development; leaving new technologies and trends unable to easily be accommodated in the country’s energy mix.
This important 2018 revision of the ‘living plan’ has been welcomed overall as a big improvement; however, industry stakeholders are not completely satisfied.
In this webinar, which takes place just hours ahead of the public comment closing deadline, we put the draft revised IRP2018 under the microscope to consider the impact on end users and the country’s economy.
