National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) announced on 3 September that it agreed with a ministerial determination to procure 2.5GW of nuclear power. Nersa said procurement could begin as long as the programme was affordable and modular, as set out in the 2019 Integrated Resource Plan. The regulator said that Eskom or another state entity would own the plants, which are not expected to begin operating until the 2030s.
