As the accelerated and shared growth initiative for South Africa (ASGI-SA) gathers

momentum, urbanisation increases, legislation relating to development becomes more

rigorous and South Africa becomes integrated into the global community, access to suitable

land to establish electricity related infrastructure becomes increasingly limited. Thus to

support value creation, network expansion plans must optimise the use of existing servitudes.

By 2050, Eskom’s coal-fired fleet (assuming a 70% share of total capacity) would exceed 90

000MW. Policy on gaseous emissions requires that:

• No retrofitting of operating power stations with Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD).

• Should a decision be taken not to install FGD, the power station will be designed to

accommodate an FGD plant.

• Tall stacks will be the primary means of controlling ground level concentrations of SOX and

NOX.

• New capacity will include a requirement for low NOX technology.

In addition, the availability of water resources in areas where new power plants will be located

will be key in site selection.
