Dear Stakeholders

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” which would be revised by the Department of Energy (DoE) every two years i.e. an Update is required in 2013.

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 markedly from that expected in 2010. Consequently the Department of Energy have completed an IRP 2010 Update which is available for you to download.

You are requested to consider this update and email your comments and or questions to Tshepo.Madingoane@energy.gov.za . The closing date for your submissions will be 7 February 2014. Comments received will be considered in preparing a final draft IRP 2010 Update which will be submitted to Cabinet for final approval by March 2014. The approved document will then be promulgated and be published in the Government Gazette.
