Eskom generates approximately 95% of the electricity used in South Africa and approximately 45% of the electricity used in Africa. Eskom generates, transmits and distributes electricity to industrial, mining, commercial, agricultural and residential customers and redistributors. The majority of sales are in South Africa. Other countries of southern Africa account for a small percentage of sales. Additional power stations and major power lines are being built to meet rising electricity demand in South Africa.
Eskom buys electricity from and sells electricity to the countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The future involvement in African markets outside South Africa (that is the SADC countries connected to the South African grid and the rest of Africa) is currently limited to those projects that have a direct impact on ensuring a secure supply of electricity for South Africa.
Role in South Africa
Countries in which operations are located, Eskom’s head office is in Johannesburg and its operations are spread throughout the country. In December 2008, Eskom also opened a small office in London in the United Kingdom, primarily to exercise quality control for the equipment being manufactured in Europe for our capacity expansion program.
Eskom Enterprises operates primarily in South Africa. It has two subsidiaries that operate electricity generation concessions in the African countries of Mali, Senegal, Mauritania and Uganda.
