This graphic collects together a series of maps and charts illustrating South Africa's power generation pipeline.

Two main maps of South Africa show committed generation (MW) by province/Eskom supply area (including power flows through  the transmission network), and pipeline generation (MW) by province (including fuel breakdown and pies showing procurement route).

A smaller map shows generation connection capacity (MW) by Eskom supply area. Also included is a table showing IPP committed generation and a pie showing aggregated national procurement pipeline.

The main data source is African Energy Live Data.
