South Africa energy markets long-term outlook 2016

Report summary

As an emerging economy with a highly energy intensive industrial sector, South Africa's economic development will continue to underpin energy demand growth. Energy demand growth in the residential sector will also be supported by government policies to aid the expansion of low cost housing, increase welfare payments, and the continuation of the electrification programme to impoverished households. Meeting the country’s electricity demand has been the key issue in South Africa's energy market in recent years.
