State Owned Enterprises
State owned entities reporting to the Minster of Energy
Provide related services in support of the Department's mandate through funded and non-funded statutory bodies and organisations.
Measurable Objective 
Enhance the Department's objectives through policies and directives, promoting its legislative mandate and leading to the creation of an environment conducive to investment and the improvement of the quality of life of South Africans.
Governance Arrangements 
The Minister of Energy has oversight responsibilities over the following five (5) State Owned Entities (SOE) and their subsidiaries which are either classified as schedule 2 or 3 in the PFMA. The enabling legislation requires the Minister to appoint members of the boards of all state owned entities reporting to the Minister of Energy. All board members, with the exclusion of CEOs, are non-executive. The Department is represented on all of these boards, with the exception of NERSA (the independent energy regulator). Boards are ultimately accountable and responsible for the performance of the entities. They give strategic directions to the entity in line with the mandate and this is in turn implemented by management.
