The world is changing its power mix. How does SA compare?
SA’s recently released Integrated Resource Plan maps out how the country will meet its energy needs to 2030. How does it compare with global efforts to find the right energy mix?
SA’s updated Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), published last month, apportioned a slice of the country’s energy pie to just about every technology save nuclear.
The plan, which maps out how SA will meet its energy needs by 2030, envisions coal accounting for 43% of installed capacity, while wind and solar power will account for 33%.
