The impact of these choices needs to be analysed in terms of the price path they create. If it is believed that these requirements are crucial to the future of South Africa and cannot be adjusted, one must test other variables influencing the price curve in order to find efficiencies. In the past , electricity tariffs were determined solely on price (i.e. 100%) – the shift to 21.74% represents a major change in expansion planning criteria with significant long term implications. 5

  • Planned Generation Capacity Additions33% of the new build plan is committed to RE technologies andalmost all to carbon neutral technologies The light blue series represent the IRP’s planned nuclear technology contribution. The majority of new build technologies are carbon neutral. The green series represent the IRP’s planned renewables technology contribution. Source: Frost & Sullivan, IRP2010 The amount of renewable or “clean” energy being added to the grid will significantly reduce South Africa’s carbon emissions. From 2022 there is also a significant amount of OCGT capacity being added, potentially as a means of balancing out the uncertainty regarding the renewable feedstocks. OCGT plants will use petroleum based feedstocks, which could expose South Africa to the volatility of international oil prices. The combination of high capital costs for renewables and high operating costs for OCGT plants inflates tariffs and increases uncertainty regarding security of supply. The inclusion of additional baseload coal plants would mitigate the supply risks and allow us to reduce the number of OCGT plants. A slower transition to renewables? 7
  • New Allocations for the Development of South Africa’s Energy Mix, 2010to 2030 Significant focus on renewable energy development 33% of additional capacity attributed to renewables Coal still to represent 48% of total generation mix With current funding constraints, Eskom is unlikely to be able to implement the entire build program IPPs and private sector investment is expected to play a major role in the security of electricity supply, particularly over the next ten years Since the publishing of the IRP 2010 there has been a new interest in the development of large scale, grid connected PV and CSP driven by the Upington Project 8
  • Changes in South Africa’s Energy Mix 2000 – 2030 9
  • Effects of the IRP on the Tariff Price Path 10
  • Future and Historic Electricity Tariffs (IRP 2010 – RBS) The planned increases in renewable energy build programs will result in significantly increases in capital expenditure on power generation projects. As a large contributor to end-user tariff calculation, this is expected to have a significant inflationary effects on an already rapidly increasing price path 11
  • Treasury has suggested the implementation of carbon taxationwith an effective rate of 1c/kWh for every R10/ton of CO₂ Various scenarios incorporating carbon tax, revealed that the original IRP model was particularly insensitive to CO ₂ taxation. This has been addressed in the IRP2010 v2, as can be seen in the new price curve represented by the dotted line above Source: Frost & Sullivan Given that there is such a controversy surrounding global emissions targets at the moment, the commitment towards such a biased renewable energy dominated new build programme could be criticised as overly expensive. The implementation of carbon taxation atR100/ton over the period to 2020 and R250/ton to 2040, will add an additional 18c/kWh to the original RBS price curve. Whilst there is no doubt that South Africa needs to address carbon mitigation strategies, these need to be balanced with maintaining a competitive economy and ultimately an affordable price path. 12
  • Effect of Tariff Price IncreasesOnce the non-ferrous metals outlier has been removed, it is easier to gauge which sectors will be most easily impacted by price increases.Many of these sectors are targeted by the IPAP and are also export focused. In order to compete on the global market, it is assumed thatthese sectors have little ability to pass on increased costs to consumers i.e. they are price “takers”. Given the declining skills base and thelack of productivity as measured against the labour force, it is possible that these sectors will not be able to easily finds other competitive advantages once electricity prices start to rise. Therefore any increase in the electricity price will directly impact on their profitability 13
  • Impact and Importance of IPPs 14
  • Executive SummaryThe allocation of new build to either Eskom or IPPs can alter the price pathtrajectory Frost & Sullivan believe that one likely future scenario for the allocation of new build, is one in which Eskom manages the nuclear programme and IPPs are responsible for all other new build projects – this is reflected in the EN1 scenario in the chart above. Frost & Sullivan have compared this scenario with two others. In the IPP scenario (red line), IPPs are responsible for all new build. In the EN1scenario, Eskom is responsible for Medupi and Kusile as well as the nuclear program . In all the scenarios it is clear that allowing IPPs to enter the market substantially lowers and flattens the price path. 15
  • Current IPP Contracts Held in the Private SectorCompany Total Generating Capacity (MW) Facilities Sappi currently holds 2 Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with Eskom amounting to a total of 48MW. Power is to be generated through renewable cogenerationSappi 45MW facilities utilizing waste wood chips and saw dust as feedstock The PPA is valid until 2013 The return to service of the Bloemfontein coal fired power station by Tangent Mining is expected to contribute 103MWTangent Mining PTY Ltd 103MW to the national grid Power is generated by two open cycle gas turbines at the companies Secunda complex Furthermore, the company is in the process of constructingSasol 200MW a 80MW heat recovery steam turbine along with their OCGT which has the potential to increase electricity sales through the establishment of an additional PPA with Eskom The companies current PPA is valid until 2014- 2015 Independent Power South Africa was the first private company to sign a PPA with Eskom for the supply of electricity to the national gird. Its combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in Newcastle, Kwazulu Natal, has a total installed capacity of 18MW. Combined cycle powerIpsa 18MW plants utilize excess heat from electricity generated from gas power to fire boilers and generate further power from additional steam turbines. Resulting high efficiencies allow these thermal plants to have 40% less emissions than coal fired power plants. The companies PPA expires in 2013. Total Added Capacity: 366 MW 16
  • What has changed? 17
  • New Allocations for the IRP New allocations for generation capacity may have significant effects on the price path Previous allocations indicated that 4,500MW of wind power and 600MW of solar power were allocated for development before 2020. For the period 2020 to 2030, 7,400MW of additional renewable energy development was allocated with no technology segmentation provided New allocations dramatically alter renewable energy allocation within the IRP document Despite events in Japan, no change has been made to the allocation for nuclear power However, impacts of power supply shortages to the manufacturing sector of the country as well as a new inward focuse on the redevelopment of Japan is expected to significantly effect the countries export market As one the leading international exporters of nuclear components, this could seriously effect lead times and final cost of production of facilities in the near to medium term Current allocations for renewables include the following: Technology MW Allocation, 2010 to 2030 Allocated REFITSolar PV 8,400 3.94 R/kWhCSP 1,000 3.14 R/kWh, 2.10 R/kWh (with storage)Wind Power 8,400 1.25 R/kWhNuclear 9,600MW -Coal 2027 allocations brought forward to 2016, - 18

  • What Does this Mean for the Power Generation Industry? 21
  • What does this mean for the power generation in the country The new focus on renewable energy is expected to drive increases in electricity tariffs beyond that of initial price curves 5,300 MW of renewable energy is to be added to initial IRP allocations Of the planned 17,800MW of allocated renewable energy, 9,400MW (52.8%) is to allocated to solar power The majority of planned solar power will most likely be attributed to the 5,000MW Upington project, with the first PV unit planned to be commissioned by the end of 2012 High capital costs of solar power and very attractive REFIT tariffs are expected to further drive tariff increases, placing large strain on energy intensive industries In order to maintain a price path that is not damaging to the countries economic growth and its ability to achieve job creation targets as specified in the IPAP2, it is imperative that the private sector be allowed to contribute the majority of renewable energy development over the next ten years 22
