Ensuring security of supply while coping with strong growth in consumption are formidable tasks when affordable and sustainable supply is imperative.
How can system adequacy and the need for reserves be ensured at the same time as renewable energy is increasing in the power system? Power pool planning, design of feed-in tariffs and industrial energy efficiency policies are examples of Ea activities in South Africa.
