OWN GOAL

7th May 2021

While football fans, especially in England, were angrily protesting a fatally flawed plan to create a closed-shop super league for a handful of elite European clubs, anger was growing in South Africa over the Risk Mitigation Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (RMIPPPP), which is equally flawed. The RMIPPPP’s ‘own goal’ lies with the way the scheme expects the various technologies to be dispatched. Instead of playing to their respective strengths, the design will translate into too much gas, mostly from powerships, being burned and too much renewable energy, from oversized facilities attached to batteries, being curtailed. An expensive mistake, indeed.
