NECSA CEO Loyiso Tyabashe has spoken with AfricaLive, making a case for nuclear as a central part of South Africa’s green growth strategy.
“Our core focus stems from South Africa’s nuclear energy plan and Integrated Resource Plan for electricity.
Both emphasize a balanced energy mix, striving for a low carbon footprint to combat global warming. Nuclear power perfectly fits this vision, encompassing environmental responsibility, security of supply, and economic viability.
It stands out with zero carbon emissions, consistent base load supply, and cost-effectiveness, emerging as the cheapest form of electricity generation in South Africa. NECSA is dedicated to propelling the success of nuclear power within the nation and the continent.”
