Energy Indaba 2017

5 December, 2017

(Ed. note: This is a draft of the agenda. This Indaba is supposed to be open to the public, but it isn’t apparently. One has to be invited and “pre-approved”, the media as well. This is NOT a public consultation, it appears to be part of the drive by Messrs Zuma, Mahlobo and others to drive through a distorted IRP in order to be able to force in nuclear. This although the modelling by the DOE itself, and Eskom, and the CSIR all conclude that nuclear is not needed until 2030 or later, and even then it has to be forced in by constraining renewable energy – at a high cost to electricity consumers and stretching our debt load even more. However, don’t expect sense to prevail at the Indaba!).
