The Portfolio Committee on Energy invites interested individuals and stakeholders to submit written comments on the Draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2018.

The National Development Plan (NDP) identifies the need for South Africa to invest in a strong network of economic infrastructure designed to support the country’s medium and long-term economic and social objectives. Energy infrastructure is a critical component that underpins economic activity and growth across the country; it needs to be robust and extensive enough to meet industrial, commercial and household needs.

The first IRP for South Africa was promulgated in March 2011. 

Comments can be sent to Mr Arico Kotze at [email protected] by no later than Friday, 05 October 2018.

Enquiries can be made with Mr Kotze at [email protected] or 021 403 3662 or 083 709 8470

In addition to the written comments, please indicate your interest in making a verbal presentation to the Committee.
