The Nuclear Frontier: An Environmentally Resilient Approach to Nuclear Energy Law Reform in South Africa
The rapid economic and social growth in South Africa has placed an immense encumbrance on the production of electricity over the past decade. South Africa remains an energy intensive country on the African continent with a significant electricity gap that would need to be generated by the year 2020. The current electricity demand accelerates the overall growth in energy supply facilitated by the South African Department of Energy and today the country experiences continuous load shedding, resulting in a need for different energy sources to power urban development.
