ENERGY ACCESS

Since 1994 South Africa has introduced many laudable and strong pro-poor policies, notably an impressive electrification and housing programme. We are now 87% electrified compared to 36% in 1996. Despite this, we have not reached the goal of universal access. If the country is to achieve a reduction in energy poverty and reach its goal of 100% electrification, policy and regulatory frameworks, and resources to support energy service delivery and implementation, need to be reviewed.
