Electrical supply – how cities can thrive on disruptive forces

Infrastructure challenges, market forces and disruptive technological advances have converged to revolutionise electrical supply in South Africa in the magnitude that the internet disrupted postal services. In what was traditionally a relatively conservative, non-dynamic industry, the drive for affordable, sustainable and reliable solutions is having a similar effect in other countries on the continent. We examine how the market is expected to develop and how our cities can adapt and thrive within this change.

Determining optimal public transport modes – have we made the right choices?
