Eskom produces about 95% of the electricity used in the country. It also generates approximately 45% of the electricity used in Africa. Eskom generates, transmits and distributes electricity to industrial, mining, commercial, agricultural and residential customers and redistributors. Additional power stations and major power must be constructed by the company to meet rising electricity demand in South Africa. Eskom claims that it will continue to “focus on improving and strengthening its core business of electricity generation, transmission, trading and distribution.”

The South African Nuclear Energy Corporation SOC Limited (Necsa) is a state-owned public company, Necsa has enjoyed a fascinating and at times controversial history, starting out as the Atomic Energy Board (AEB). The AEB was established in 1948 in terms of an Act of Parliament, with the immediate objective of regulating the uranium industry in South Africa. Apart from its main activities at Pelindaba, which include operation and utilisation of the SAFARI-1 research reactor, Necsa also manages and operates the Vaalputs National Radioactive Waste Disposal Facility in the Northern Cape on behalf of the National Radioactive Waste Disposal Institute (NRWDI).
