Eskom, Exxaro and Seriti Resources have announced their joint efforts to realise a just energy transition to a lower carbon future in SA, with the aim of job creation.
On Monday, 25 October 2021, Eskom issued a statement announcing that the power utility, together with Exxaro and Seriti Resources, is working towards realising a just energy transition to a low carbon future in South Africa. The three parties have signed a landmark Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) detailing their intention to pursue the development of renewable energy projects, to lower the carbon footprint of their operations.
The parties aim to create employment and re-skill opportunities for communities living and working around their operations, whilst transitioning to a low carbon future in South Africa. Exxaro and Seriti are known to be the largest coal suppliers to Eskom, and by implementing renewable energy solutions at their Eskom-tied operations, they aim to achieve both carbon reduction and cost savings in the generation and use of electricity at mines.
