The article reports that Rand 93 billion electricity expansion is to underpin big coal investment in South Africa. Coal is, and is set to remain, the dominant source of fuel for South Africa's power-generation industry, which is on the cusp of a Rand 93 billion capacity-expansion phase. Despite ongoing calls for greater fuel diversification, several coal-linked projects are already under way or in the pipeline and, given its cost advantages, it is widely anticipated that more megawatts will inevitably mean more coal.
