Business Unity South Africa plans to approach the Mineral Department for data used to inform expectations detailed in the draft Integrated Resource Plan. We speak to Busa’s head of energy and environment, Happy Khambule.

The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy released its Integrated Resource Plan, which suggests less usage of renewable energy. The plan also suggests that South Africa must build more gas generation capacity despite not having a reliable supply of gas. Energy expert Mthunzi Luthuli says he’s pleasantly surprised by the announcement.

The Mineral Resources and Energy Department has finally gazetted the Integrated Resource Plan. And it says that South Africa will not have uninterrupted power before 2030. It also says nuclear power is one of six potential answers to the energy crisis. To discuss this further, we talk to energy expert, Matthew Cruise.

Government’s latest draft energy plan shows that power cuts will be with us for at least another decade despite the ANC promising to end rolling blackouts. Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe has gazetted the Integrated Resources Plan of 2023 which breaks down the expansion of generation capacity needed to keep the lights on. Head of energy secretariat at Sanedi, Prof Sampson Mamphweli discussed this with eNCA.

South Africa will still be dealing with electricity supply problems by the year 2030, according to the long-awaited draft Integrated Resources Plan of 2023, gazetted by Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe this week. The IRP maps out the expansion of generation capacity over 2 time horizons, one from 2023 and the other from 2031 to 2050. For a better understanding of this, we are joined by Science and Innovation’s Energy Secretariat Head of Department at the South African National Energy Development Institute, Professor Sampson Mamphweli.

Minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, responsible for electricity in the Presidency, encourages public engagement with the approved Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2023. IRP 2023, endorsed by Cabinet, will be released by the Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy for public scrutiny, according to SA Gov News.
