ABSTRACT
The article comments on South Africa's energy policy and requirements. It is stated that South Africa cannot afford to postpone decisions about building large number of power stations. Factories, mines, agriculture and the services sector need a sustainable supply of electricity in order to grow. After the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power station in Japan, questions are being raised about the safety of nuclear power plants.
