The energy landscape is experiencing major changes globally These changes. are influenced and driven by various factors such as climate change economic. drivers development and sustainability of base load energy demand This has. placed the onus on governments to optimally manage available energy resources . Have changes in the global energy landscape altered the South African energy. objectives and have they influenced the factors that drive the country s Energy. Policy This research study analyses how the South African energy policy has. developed over time and highlights the key drivers to date . The findings of research study indicates that the key drivers of South African. Energy policy are reduction in greenhouse gas emissions economic growth and. realising social development objectives Policy makers continue to face critical. choices in meeting the energy demand optimising energy resources managing. greenhouse gas emissions and realising set economic objectives pursuant to. formulating a policy that caters for the country s requirements . Analysis of the South African Energy Policy Key Drivers Webb Meko 677517. CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION TO THE RESEARCH,1 1 Introduction. In South Africa energy policy has been an important feature of the public dialogue in. recent years There have been debates and varying views around climate change . the growing power generation capacity deficit and the development of various. energy technologies to cater for the country s energy demand . As demand continues to exceed available supply and reserve margins decrease . South Africa continue to face the challenge of catering for energy demand The. South African government is exploring ways to meet the country s energy. requirements sustainably How it addresses the country s energy requirements. hinges on the direction of its energy policy ,1 2 Research Questions. The direction of South African energy policy has evolved over time from an energy. sector dominated by fossil fuel to the planned balanced power mix that promotes the. inclusion of renewable energy sources , What are the key drivers of the energy policy that have led to the transformation of. South Africa s energy sector , Have the following factors influenced the energy policy . Energy resource availability, Economic growth, Climate change.
Social development, Energy import and export options. Analysis of the South African Energy Policy Key Drivers Webb Meko 677517. 1 3 Research Approach, The research was conducted and concluded using a three step approach as outlined. in Figure 1 1 The process entailed research design literature survey and analysis . and was concluded by reporting on the findings ,Figure 1 1 Research approach. 1 4 Literature Survey, This research study seeks to understand and identify the key drivers of the South. African energy policy To achieve this related literature was reviewed both in the. South African context and globally , The literature review included an analysis of the South African energy policy and.
other related government policies Information between policies was then correlated. to determine convergence and similarities The Integrated Resource Planning 2010. document was also analysed to determine the current policy direction from the. strategic planning perspective , Further literature survey was conducted to determine energy policy trends globally . Energy policies of selected countries were reviewed to determine global policy. direction The global trends were then assessed to determine how they have. influenced South African energy policy and to determine whether they are also key. Analysis of the South African Energy Policy Key Drivers Webb Meko 677517. 1 5 Findings and Reporting, The third and final step was the analysis of the findings through collating the data. from the surveyed literature to answer the posed research questions The findings. are presented in this research document,1 6 Significance of the Study. South Africa as observed in the Integrated Resource Plan 2010 IRP 2010 has. embarked on a noble yet challenging mission of transforming the energy mix as it. plans to develop an additional renewable energy and nuclear power capacity of 37. GW by year 2030 , This research study assesses and seeks to understand current South African energy. policy and consequently determine its key drivers and how these drivers are likely to. shape the South African power mix in the future,1 7 Delimitations of the Study.
The study assesses the energy policy key drivers starting from the development of. the 1998 White Paper on energy Energy policy developments prior to 1998 were. not assessed , Due to the relatively small size of oil and gas in South Africa the focus is primarily on. the energy sector as it relates to power generation for the production of electricity . Energy resources that are researched are mainly coal gas hydro nuclear wind . concentrated solar power and photovoltaic of installed plant capacity of 50MW and. larger The study does not assess nor compare the various technologies and energy. resources , Analysis of the South African Energy Policy Key Drivers Webb Meko 677517. CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEW ON ENERGY POLICY,2 1 Introduction. A government policy comprises general principles that guide a government or. legislature in the management of public affairs with key objectives for the welfare. and prosperity of the state and its people 3 Government policies represent a point. of departure for planning and ultimately determine the course of action for. implementation , Governments use policies to manage a wide range of state affairs from education . immigration land rights energy etc Policies are developed by government. departments and during development may be influenced in various ways by. stakeholders such as political parties civil groups community groups business. community and non governmental organisations , Energy resources are crucial assets and major contributors to many countries Gross.
Domestic Product GDP growth consequently they are important resources that. must be well managed by any country , Management of energy resources is normally outlined in the country s energy policy . This guiding document outlines how a country plans to manage its energy resources. to ensure that they are secured and sustainable for the beneficial use of its people. 3 Most governments place the management of energy resources and the. development of the policy under the auspices of an organisation like South Africa s. Department of Energy, Key features of an energy policy include guidelines on energy production energy. conservation regulation legislation import and export of energy international. treaties incentives to investment emissions guidelines taxation and other related. government policies that will impact on the availability and sustainability of energy. resources , Analysis of the South African Energy Policy Key Drivers Webb Meko 677517. The crucial first step towards the effective management of energy resources is the. development of energy policy As shown in Figure 2 1 the next step after the energy. policy is developed is to formulate the energy strategic plan This plan is based on. the direction set out in the policy and outlines how the policy will be realised . Once the strategic plan is finalised an execution plan is developed detailing how the. government and other energy stakeholders will interface to implement the developed. Policy implementation is the final step of the process entailing the construction.
