The JET vision and strategy is integrated into Eskom’s long-term plans with a clear set of ambitions that have been defined.
Eskom’s definition of Just Energy Transition (JET)
The Just Energy Transition is about a movement towards a lower carbon future, whilst enabling the creation of job opportunities for those displaces by the replacement of coal by these new technologies. The JET occurs in a phased manner over time. It is not abrupt change, but is radical change for Eskom.
The JET will focus on 4 elements:
- Just: doing better for people and the planet, growing localisation and industrialisation
- Energy: cleaner, sustainable electricity provision
- Transition: transformational change of business models, attracting green financing
- Enablers: collaboration across constituencies
