Eskom’s media briefing (scheduled for Friday) will provide an indication of the country’s energy and electricity prospects for winter. This is a briefing that is eagerly awaited, says the solar PV industry association body SAPVIA. Eskom’s Group Chief Executive Dan Marokane will brief the media on Friday Eskom’s State of the System and Winter Outlook.

“This will be an important indicator of what we can expect in terms of energy reliability over the coming winter season, a time that generally puts greater pressure on the national grid,” says SAPVIA CEO Dr Rethabile Melamu.

“Considering the extra capacity that has recently become available, we feel a sense of optimism that our risks for load shedding could be reduced. It does not however mean that we are out of the woods at all. The focused commitment on the roll-out of renewables must continue, so that we have a balanced mix of energy sources to carry our nation through winter,” she adds.

“As an industry body, we look forward to working with our various stakeholders and partners this year to make sure that solar PV maintains its rightful place as part of our country’s energy plans for the future. SAPVIA eagerly awaits the information that will be shared during Friday’s media briefing,” says Melamu.
