South Africa has committed to increasing its renewable generation capacity to help fulfil its international climate change mitigation commitments to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Currently, the majority of electricity generated by the South African electricity utility, Eskom, and sold on to inter alia, municipalities is coal based. The electricity landscape in South Africa is, however, changing – moving away from the single buyer model to accommodate other generators and buyers. To date, municipalities have not fully participated in the energy transition especially around decarbonizing the electricity sector.
