South Africa to Prioritize Grid Expansion Over Next Decade

South Africa will prioritize the expansion of its national grid over the next decade to end power load shedding and is expected to have an additional 24 gigawatts of energy, according to the country’s Minister of Power in the Presidency, Ramohoopa. Ramohoopa pointed out that the South African government is carrying out about 25 projects at existing substations, and the projects may release about 13 GW of energy. The current South African grid remains fragile and vulnerable to a sharp drop in power generation, with Eskom confirming that its power failures have increased to 16,943 megawatts.
