oa Africa Insight - A strategy for power and water transfers in Southern Africa

Volume 21, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-2804



It is a great pleasure for me to be invited to speak at this conference on ""Southern Africa towards the year 2000"" because at Eskom we have a programme called Eskom 2000 which addresses similar issues. Consequently, it could be said that I have a vested interest in this conference! Eskom, I would point out, is Southern Africa's largest supplier of electrical energy. It supplies nearly 97 per cent of the electricity used in South Africa and more than half of that used on the entire African continent. By transferring this energy where it is needed most we at Eskom believe that not only can we help boost the Southern African economy but at the same time immeasurably improve the quality of life of all peoples on the subcontinent.
