2 Power Pool Members Angola Botswana Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Lesotho Malawi Mozambique Namibia South Africa Swaziland Tanzania Zambia Zimbabwe
3 Power Pool Overview (1) SAPP was set up in August 1995 Main objectives: Provide forum for the development of a world class, robust, safe, efficient, reliable and stable interconnected electrical system in Southern African region. Optimise the use of available energy resources in the Southern African region and support one another during emergencies. Key activities undertaken so far : Established the short-term energy market (STEM) in April Completed SAPP telecommunications study in 2001 with implementation of the recommendations following in 2005/6. Frequency relaxation project completed & implemented in Transmission wheeling tariffs implemented in phases from January 2003 to January Quality of supply database implementation in progress Interconnectors: Zimbabwe-Botswana-South Africa (1995), South Africa-Swaziland-Mozambique (2001), Mozambique-Zimbabwe (1997), Namibia-South Africa (2002), Namibia-Zambia (2006).
4 Power Pool Overview (2) Next key activities planned : Development and implementation of the SAPP competitive electricity market: Jan 2004 to Dec Transmission pricing policy, ancillary services market development and implementation procedures: May 2005 to Feb Development of a balancing mechanism: June 2007 Implementation of the SAPP priority generation & transmission projects: From Jan 2006
