South Africa reports on energy investments
The expansion of the nuclear programme remained part of South Africa’s future energy mix, according to the Economic Sectors, Employment and Infrastructure Development cluster.
“The procurement plan for (the) 9 600MW nuclear build programme will be implemented in the next decade at a pace informed by what the country can afford,” it said.
