Grid Planning as Important as Power Generation

The ISS urges government to consider the key element of how electricity moves from generation to consumption in energy planning

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) has said that, “Energy planning in South Africa has neglected the key element of how electricity moves from generation to consumption.”
 
In Gridlocked‚ a research paper‚ the ISS’s Steve Hedden criticises “government’s response to power shortages and load-shedding” for having been “a thrust towards more power generation” but has neglected the element of “transmission and distribution”.
 
Hedden warns from Grid planning being an afterthought and advises that it has to be built in from the start, furthermore, one of elements planners must now consider‚ the report said‚ is “the rise of renewable energy‚ and the addition of independent power producers.”
