The Electric Drive Vehicle Deployment Act of 2010 in the Representatives and the Electric Vehicle Deployment Act of 2010 in the Senate provide a range of measures to encourage the rapid deployment of electric vehicles, including incentives to consumers to purchase electric vehicles, support for selected communities to demonstrate the widespread deployment of electric vehicles, and incentives for the deployment of charging infrastructure.
Eskom is South Africa’s national electricity utility. It supplies 95% of the electricity requirements of South Africa, and in the process generates more electricity than all the other suppliers in Africa combined. It is also one of the top seven utilities in the world in terms of size and sales.
It intends to maintain this position by adopting strategies that strengthen its ability to react to changing requirements, while embracing flexibility to deal with uncertainty. This position is embodied in Eskom’s strategic intent – to be the pre-eminent African energy and related services business of global stature.
