Transitions in South Africa’s energy provision

The key questions are: There are various transitions that can be related to the Just Energy Transition. How should these transitions be managed? What science, engineering best practice, and technology can inform these transitions? How can South Africa’s electricity crisis be ended, its impacts mitigated and long term supply of electricity be established on a firm footing?

Electricity generation, transmission and distribution are in a perpetual state of crisis in SA. President Cyril Ramaphosa declared the crisis a Disaster, given the magnitude of the cascading negative impacts caused by the ongoing failure of all parts of the vast national electricity system. The declaration was withdrawn due to widespread criticism. Yet, the crisis can indeed be called a disaster without it being a National Disaster in the legal sense of the term. It is truly disastrous for our country and its people.
