Eskom Holdings is responsible for the generation, transportation, and distribution of nearly 95% of the power used in South Africa, which accounts for 60% of the total electricity used across the African continent. In terms of producing capacity, Eskom is the eleventh biggest power utility in the world. However, in terms of sales, it is the ninth largest, and it operates the world’s largest dry-cooling power station.
Eskom is one of the few vertically integrated utilities that still exist, and it is one of the few that is connected to the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) through an interconnected system. This helps maintain the stability of the grid. Eskom is dependent on the members of SADC to ensure that sufficient and reliable transmission networks are maintained in their respective nations.
