The possibility of load shedding by Eskom in South Africa this winter is larger than the Day Zero water crisis that engulfed Cape Town until last month, independent energy expert Ted Blom told Fin24 on Wednesday.
Blom “is highly critical of the South African government’s recent signing of 27 renewable energy independent power producer projects."
Italy-based Building Energy has signed power purchase agreements with the South African-state-owned utility Eskom Holdings to build, own and operate in the country a 147 MW wind plant in Roggeveld and a 4,7 MW mini hydroelectric plant in Free State.
New energy minister Jeff Radebe announced at Parliament on Thursday that agreements with 27 renewable energy projects will be signed with Eskom on Tuesday.
In the Budget on February 21 the South African government is likely to announce the clear way forward for the on again, off again, nuclear deal that the experts say the country needs and the critics say will bankrupt the country.
African businesses and power producers need to keep up with the ever changing energy landscape to ensure that the industry reaches its full potential.
Speak to most South Africans about electricity, and the topic is likely to turn to the increasing dent it is making in the monthly budget, and the seemingly endless controversy surrounding Eskom. Some may also talk about the hugely negative environmental and health impact of electricity produced from large coal fired power stations. At the end of the day such conversations are inevitably negative and are likely to end with a depressing shake of the head.
