(1) Yes, Eskom's compliance with the minimum emissions standards (MES) is currently being monitored by the Department of Environmental Affairs. The draft IRP 2019 explored scenarios wherein through the energy mix, we reduce the aggregate emissions profile of South Africa's energy generation sector. In order to mitigate against high emissions, provision is made for other technologies to meet the supply/demand gap, taking into account the technical and economical characteristics of each technology.

(2) An analysis has already been done based on the IRP Update. Job creations is one of the objectives under the IRP Update process

(a) What is the combined generation capacity of rooftop solar installations in the Republic according to his department's estimate and (b) what number of hours of load-shedding was prevented by such installations? NW1157E

Reply:

a) There are no official rooftop solar 1nstaiied capacity numbers as most of these installations were considered "generation for own use" in line with the old Schedule 2 of the Electricity Regulation Act (ERA) which exempted !hem from the requirement to be licensed or registered. Realising the impact these installations are likely to have on capacity planning, power systems operations and personal safety, in year 2017 the Department amended Schedule 2 of ERA therefore compelling these facilities to be registered or licensed with National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA). NERSA is in the process of finalising the registration processes and rules, which will enable formal collection and analysis of information and data or. distributed generation.
The South African Photovoltaic Association (SAPV!A) estimate installed rooftop solar capacity in the country to be about 280MW.

b) There are no official number of hours as the installed capacity of rooftop solar is not known.

Nxumalo, Mr MN to ask the Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy

Whether he has a plan in place to ensure the safety of mine workers. Particularly when trade union members and workers decide to embark on a strike while they are underground; if not. why not: if so. what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The legislation compels all underground mines to ensure that all employees are brought to surface as soon as possible at the end of their shift, as per regulation 4.1.1 in force in terms of Schedule 4 of the Mine Health and Safety Act No 29 of 1996, as amended. The primary objective of this regulation is to prevent mine employees from being exposed to a dangerous environment for long periods of time unnecessarily. In this regard, the Department will encourage the mine employers to ensure compliance with the respective legal provisions.

Also, any dispute between the labour and employer must be resolved by using the established negotiation processes. The Commission of Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) can also be called to assist when there is an impasse between the two parties. Again, I want to stress that labour must refrain from underground sit-in and rather apply for a protected strike as enshrined in the Labour Relations Act

(1) What is the status of the Thyspunt site, in the Kouga Local Municipality, which was intended to be the site of the nuclear build programme; (2) why are public participation processes around the specified site continuing; (3) what is the status of the nuclear build programme? NW1481E

Reply:

1. Thyspunt remains one of Eskom's suitable sites to host a nuclear power plant. It has undergone extensive environmental studies in the form of environmental impact assessment and nuclear site safety review by independent consultants. Eskom has submitted nuclear site installation license (N ISL) applications for Thyspunt in order to get the site ready for any South African future nuclear power plans.

2. Site approvals for nuclear power plants, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and Nuclear Installation Site License (N ISL) from National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) are long-lead items. Consequently, the NNR is continuing with Eskom's application for NISL. The public hearings are an integral part of this NISL process.

Since receipt and acceptance of the Nuclear Installation Site Licence applications, the National Nuclear Regulator (NNR) has been seized with its internal technical review process of the Thyspunt site application, which is a lengthy and thorough process focusing on technical, scientific and onsite assessments amongst others.

The reason for holding NNR public hearings around the Thyspunt during this time is that NNR has completed its internal review process of the Thyspunt site application and is now embarking on an external consultation process to listen to health, safety and environmental concerns related to the application from interested and affected parties. The NNR embarks on this process to ensure that its regulatory decision making is independent, robust and transparent.

3. In terms of the Nuclear Energy Policy for 2008, the new nuclear build programme is still part of the energy mix. The Nuclear Energy Policy provides the government vision for developing extensive nuclear energy programme and to become self-sufficient in all aspects of the nuclear value chain for peaceful use of nuclear energy.

The nuclear build programme is informed by the Integrated Resources Plan (IRP). NEDLAC is in the process of finalizing IRP. In September 2019, the Integrated Resource Plan will be tabled in Cabinet for approval. The Integrated Resource Plan considers a diversified energy mix that include cleaner coal, nuclear, gas, hydro, renewables and battery storage. The outcomes of the revised IRP, will determine how the nuclear new build programme becomes phased in future. Government policy position is that South Africa will acquire nuclear at the price, pace and scale that the country can afford.

Reply:

  1. The department has developed Youth Policy in the Energy Sector. The policy seeks to attract young people and create an environment that enables youths to reach their potential in the energy sector. The policy is aimed at addressing amongst others; employment creation, youth economic participation and access to business opportunities, speed up transformation in a way that will benefit young people, enhance skills development to ensure that young people are equipped with necessary skills to enter energy sector job market and access to business opportunities throughout the value chain, outreach projects, youth volunteerism on energy projects, and public private partnenhip.
  2. There are different measures in place to develop and assist young people to participate in the energy sector:

the measures are as follows:

  •  Learners Week (LFW) Programme - The LFW programme is a department’s flagship project focusing on awareness on careers in the energy sector, The programme aims to promote skills development amongst the youth by creating awareness and exposure of career opportunities within the Energy sector for learner doing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The programme targets 250 learners from five provinces per year, whereby the Department of Education in the provinces identifies 50 top Grade 11 12 learners in quintile 1-3 schools doing STEM to pa#icipate in the programme. This year alone the department through our partners (private energy companies) will give 56 bursaries to learners from disadvantage communities to study engineering, computer sciences and other related energy programmes.

What steps has his department taken to encourage the retraining of mine workers by mining companies in order to adjust to (a) automation and (b) new jobs?

Reply:

The MPRDA provides for submission of a Social and Labour Plan (SLP) which is one of the requirements of the granting criteria. The Human Resource Development (HRD) is one of the elements of the SLP. Its key objective is to ensure that mining right holders provides for training of employees and community workers. The training provided is aimed at improving the skills base such that productivity is improved. Furthermore companies must provide portable skills which prepares employees to compete in the broader labour market. In order to realise the HRD objective, mining right holders must invest a minimum 5% of leviable amount (excluding the statutory skills development levy) on essential skills development.

In the event that there might be threatening job losses, the mining right holders should identify and reskill workers with the objective of either adjusting to the new methods of working or competing in the labour market.
