South Africa's Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) 2018 contained serious flaws which significantly undermined confidence in its recommendations. So affirmed University of the Witwatersrand Honorary Research Fellow and South African Network for Nuclear Education, Science and Technology National Coordinator Dr Anthonie Cilliers on Wednesday. He was addressing the Nuclear Industry Association of South Africa workshop on the industry's response to the IRP. "A key input in to the IRP that we are looking at is the methodology of least-cost analysis -- in particular, there are two aspects of this that we are looking at," he told Engineering News Online. "The first aspect is how comprehensively the methodology was implemented, in terms of all aspects of costs, including socioeconomic costs and cost to local industry. And we feel that the IRP does not address these issues, the overall costs, fully. We will elaborate on this when we make our submission on the IRP."
