As the world faces the most severe energy crisis since the 1970s, the World Economic Forum has released a special report on the state of the global energy transition, which indicates that urgent action is required by both private and public sectors to ensure a resilient transition to new energy sources. According to the report, Fostering Effective Energy Transition 2022, the urgency for countries to accelerate a holistic energy transition is reinforced by high fuel prices, commodities’ shortages, insufficient headway on achieving the climate goals and slow progress on energy justice and access.

Engineering and professional services firm WSP has confirmed that in October 2021, it was appointed as the engineer for the Eskom Battery Energy Storage Solutions (BESS) project which includes a number of Eskom distribution sites in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. WSP’s responsibilities include engineering, assistance in procurement, construction supervision, project management, and commissioning services for the project.

Eskom has announced, with regret, the resignation of Phillip Dukashe, Group Executive for Generation. Describing Mr Dukashe as a true, loyal asset to Eskom and the country, the utility said he will leave on 31 May 2022. In his resignation letter and discussions with Eskom executives, Dukashe cited the need to achieve a balance for the benefit of his health, family and work responsibilities.
