TWO QUESTIONS FOR THE NEW IRP TO BE RELEASED MARCH 2016

The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) is South Africa's energy roadmap for Electric Power until 2030.

The IRP is under review and is due to be published in March 2016. The 2010 version of the IRP was revised in 2012/2013. This revision was released for public comment but hasn't been promulgated. Now a 2016 revision of the IRP is currently under way and apparently due in March 2016. This leads us to ask two crucial questions for the Diesel and Gas generator industry:

  1. Will the March 2016 revision include plans for electricity generation through privately owned generators? Many people would like to sell their spare capacity back onto the grid.
  2. Will the IRP open the door to selling back onto the national grid?

Time will tell. To Speak to one of our Generator experts contact us on 0860 898 000 or visit www.barloworldpower.com
