The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2010-30 was promulgated in March 2011. It was indicated at the time that the IRP should be a “living plan”. Since the promulgation of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2010-30 there have been a number of developments in the energy sector in South and Southern Africa. In addition the electricity demand outlook has changed from that expected in 2010.

The Department of Energy is in the process of updating the IRP and has published Assumptions and Base Case for you to consider and comment on.

You are invited to comment on the Draft IEP Report and the IRP Assumptions and the Base Case through the consultation workshops and or in writing to the Department. Comments received will be considered in preparing a draft final IRP Update which will be submitted to Cabinet for approval. Closing date for submitting written comments is 31 March 2017.

Interested parties interested in making presentation at the workshop must register by sending an email with the presentation to not later than 2 days before the consultation workshop.
