Wheeling is a scalable solution to creating a stable electricity supply industry within the southern African region. While wheeling does not necessarily mean that the electrons entering the transmission network at point A will be used at point B, it is a solution to balancing the energy from the generator with the end user load.

Now that South Africa’s Department of Mineral Resources and Energy will be gazetting the amendment to Schedule 2 of the country’s Electricity Regulation Act that pushes the self-generation threshold up to 100MW, it is timeous to review how wheeling operates and what changes can be anticipated within the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP).

What you will learn:

  • The role of SAPP
    – Day ahead market and balancing market impact
    – Methodology of cross border tariffs
  • Lessons from successful SAPP wheeling deals
  • Lessons from an interconnector operator
  • Possible SAPP impact on RSA wheeling
    – SAPP membership for RSA buyers / IPPs
