South African Energy Policy Failures

Where has South Africa failed? Is it in policy? I've researched South Africa's Energy and Transport Policies. And the failures are in implementation. Watch this 4 hour video series on South Africa's electricity policy (strategy), law (guidance to implement strategy), expert commentary, and my own commentary.


PS: I studied Transport policy to see if the problem is only in Energy and actually it is in both. Note that policy was informed by wide public participation. Implementation has hardly any public participation. I believe this is where the problems lie. Government thinks it can do it alone, with its consultants, and its in house expertise. But Billion Dollar Programs MUST have public input.

David's books

 


I'm selling my first three paperbacks for R600 (for all three; the full price is currently R1880) including delivery anywhere in Cape Town. Payment for delivery is a cup of coffee, with the author, who lives in Milnerton, when he delivers. So far I've delivered as far as Robertson, but they had to buy me lunch :)
 
The books are:
 
The Torah as an Enlightenment Toolkit: how the Jacob archetype can become the Israel archetype. These are archetypes. They aren't men or women.
 
A User Manual for Life on Earth: how to run the world so that we don't have plagues and global warming.
Ramblings of an A-lien: how to get out of debt, for humanity.
 
The books are also available on a Smashwords sale at the moment (for July) for up to 75% off: see https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/lipdav14
 
And the books are on Kindle, and Amazon Paperbacks.
 
You can pay cash, EFT, or credit card.

Eskom's Capitulation

Eskom has capitulated and ordered 3 Turkish Ship Based Power Stations. In my opinion this shows that Nersa, which obviously has licensed these “IPP’s” doesn’t care about the many South Africans who have volunteered to power South Africa, and at the same time it shows that Eskom is unwilling or unable to complete their power station build and will now outsource their “base load” power to a Turkish Company. It also shows that although the South African government have constantly said that they cannot have large embedded generators inside the South African grid because the grid needs “strengthening”, in actual fact this is a lie as these three ships will be embedded in the South African grid.
