Cape Town – Nuclear energy executives and advisers have regrouped to discuss the way forward after a court case cancelled the start of the 9.6 GW new build procurement programme last month.

The meeting occurred a day before Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi’s budget speech, where she officially restarted the nuclear process, saying: “We will proceed with the signing of the new intergovernmental agreements with the five countries and submit to Parliament within reasonable time”.    

Leaders from Eskom to Necsa and from Rosatom and EDF spent Thursday at the African Utility Week in Cape Town updating colleagues on the future of nuclear energy in South Africa.
