INVITATION FOR PUBLIC SUBMISSIONS
DRAFT INTEGRATED RESOURCE PLAN (IRP) 2018
The Portfolio Committee on Energy invites interested individuals and
stakeholders to submit written comments on the Draft Integrated
Resource Plan (IRP) 2018.
The National Development Plan (NDP) identifies the need for South
Africa to invest in a strong network of economic infrastructure designed
to support the country’s medium and long-term economic and social
objectives. Energy infrastructure is a critical component that underpins
economic activity and growth across the country; it needs to be robust
and extensive enough to meet industrial, commercial and household
The first IRP for South Africa was promulgated in March 2011. It was
indicated at the time that the IRP should be a “living plan” which will be
frequently revised by the Department of Energy (DoE).
Enquiries, as well as written submissions, can be sent to the Portfolio
Committee on Energy (attention: Mr Arico Kotze), 3rd floor, WS 3/107, 90
Plein Street, Cape Town 8001, or e-mailed to email@example.com
In addition to the written comments, please indicate your interest in
making a verbal presentation to the Committee.
The closing date for submissions is 05 October 2018.
Copies of the Draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) can be obtained from
Mr Arico Kotze at 021 403 3662, 083 709 8470 or www.parliament.gov.za
