About this Publication:

The South African electricity sector is changing. An increasing number of independent power producers are involved in the generation sector and a ‘hybrid power market’ has emerged. To respond to the ongoing electricity crisis and to enhance security of supply, the legal and regulatory framework must keep pace with recent developments in the electricity supply industry, address the challenges and attract investment in a sustainable manner.

Electricity Law in South Africa contains a comprehensive analysis of the existing legal and regulatory framework for the country’s electricity supply industry. It is also a contribution to the discussion on electricity sector reform in South Africa.
