  • Coal will continue to play a significant role in South Africa’s plan to boost electricity generation over the next decade, with more renewable energy also lined up, mines and energy minister Gwede Mantashe said on Friday.
  • Mantashe unveiled South Africa’s long-delayed plan for electricity generation until 2030 as the country experienced power cuts for a third day.
  • The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) replaces a previous blueprint not updated for almost a decade, and deals with planned electricity generation combined with the energy mix.
