This is an interesting opportunity to attend a lecture by a person who lead the NDP energy component. When our event calendar works again, we will add it to the calendar.

The National Development Plan was adopted by Cabinet in September 2012. Its energy section envisages that, by 2030, South Africa will have an Energy Sector that promotes:
- Economic growth and development through adequate investment in energy infrastructure. The sector should provide a reliable and efficient electricity service at competitive rates, while supporting economic growth through job creation.
- Social equity through expanded access to electricity at affordable tariffs and through targeted, sustainable subsidies for needy households.
- Environmental sustainability through efforts to reduce pollution and mitigate the effects of climate change.
