· Coal as a source of energy. Coal is South Africa's dominant energy source. 77% of South Africa's energy needs are provided by coal, according to the Department of Energy 6. Eskom produces 95% of electricity used in South Africa 7, and its coalfired stations produce about 90% of electricity produced by the utility 8.
· Coal is used to generate approximately 40 % of the total electricity in the world, but in South Africa, 74 % of the electricity is generated from coal combustion (Cairncross 2001).Coal around the world, including South Africa, contains trace amounts of chalcogenic elements such as As, Se, Cd, Sb and Hg, which are released during the utilisation of coal and are of major environmental and public ...
Study on health impacts of coal burning in South Africa • Funded by groundWork (FoE South Africa) • Objectives: – Inform the current debate on power generation in South Africa • Choice of power generation technologies • Consequences of not meeting emission limits – Raise awareness of the harm to health caused by air pollution 11
· South Africa is one of the top five coal exporting countries worldwide. Almost one quarter the coal mined in the country South Africa gets exported making it the third largest foreign income earner for the state. By 2004, the coal and lignite industry of South Africa offered more than 50,000 jobs, generating over R40 billion.
The Coal Baseload IPP Procurement Programme has been designed to procure capacity and energy derived from 2 500 (two thousand five hundred) megawatts of coalfired power generation. The new generation capacity to be provided in the first bid window, will be required to be connected to the grid as quickly as possible and by no later than December 2021.

This publiion covers a broad overview and analysis of the South African energy prices and aims to keep stakeholders informed about energy prices and key issues affecting the energy industry.
Coal Mining in South Africa. Coal mining's advent in South Africa can best be traced to the start of gold mining in the late 19 th century, particularly on the Witwatersrand, with the first coal in appreciable tonnages being extracted on the Highveld coal field close to the nascent Witwatersrand gold mines.
