President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced big plans to increase Eskom’s ability to supply electricity after many years of instability and loadshedding. News24 reports that in his weekly newsletter to South Africans, Ramaphosa said the government had gazetted ministerial determinations that would enable the development of more than 11 800MW of additional power generation. SA’s leader added that the new energy would be procured from diverse sources, including solar, wind, gas, coal and storage through a transparent tendering procurement process that prioritises competitiveness and cost-effectiveness. Namibia currently imports most of its electricity from South Africa and other countries in the region. A special arrangement between NamPower and Eskom enables Namibia to buy and utilise the surplus energy from SA at affordable rates.
