Report summary

Eskom's coal prices have increased five fold over the past 15 years due to higher cash costs and more recently new expensive supply contracts. The coal supply deficit from traditional cost plus and key fixed price mines has increased to one third of Eskom's total annual consumption reaching 39 million tonnes in 2015.This upward trend in coal prices is set to deteriorate for Eskom as some key supply contracts near an end.
