This report represents one of the most comprehensive research projects in resolving the myriad of problems currently confronting Eskom, South Africa’s largest emitter of greenhouse gasses. This report and the launch will be geared towards understanding the necessity of a Just Energy Transition, the labour movement’s opposition to unbundling, the financial crisis at Eskom and possibilities in resolving it.
Another key pillar of the report’s launch will be in elucidating some of the key failures in Public-Private-Partnerships, drawing from the local and international experience. Not only that, but the Eskom Transformed launch will also seek to dispel some misconceptions many have around the inevitability of a transition to renewable energy.
The most important dimension of this launch will be in helping present a vision of a transformed Eskom, one that produces clean and sustainable energy. A transformed Eskom, that is socially owned and operated in the public interest. A transformed Eskom, that does not sacrifice the environmental or the economic wellbeing of its employees and the communities it services.
Now more than ever, it is important for us to fight towards building a public service that works for us!
We hope to have you with us on the launch of this groundbreaking report.
