The Department of Energy(DoE) recently released the much-anticipated Integrated Resource Plan 2016 (Draft IRP2016) detailing South Africa’s energy generation mix until 2050. Concentrating Solar Power  (CSP) generation was not included in the mix which in the worst case translates to “the death of CSP” in South Africa.
