Creamer Media’s Electricity 2014 report provides insight into South Africa’s electricity generation, exploring the issues of State-owned power utility Eskom's generated power, coal supplies, electricity tariffs and demand-focused initiatives, as well as the Department of Energy's independent power producer programme. The report also looks into the country’s electricity planning, transmission and distribution, as well as some regional power projects.

Although South Africa has avoided load-shedding since 2008, State-owned power utility Eskom continues to walk a tightrope in trying to supply electricity to industry and consumers while bringing overdue power plants on line and maintaining its current power station fleet.

To deal with the mismatch between supply and demand, Eskom is investing in new generation and transmission capacity, giving mothballed power stations a new lease on life and operating its fleet for longer.

The Department of Energy is also facilitating the introduction of power generated by private companies to increase generation capacity and diversify the country’s energy mix. The competitive bidding process to procure renewable-energy power currently manifests as the DoE’s most advanced independent power producer programme, with three bidding rounds having delivered 3 900 MW of electricity from 64 projects across the country so far.
