• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

  • Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

Cape Town - Power utility Eskom is concerned that its Medupi power plant may not come on stream in 2012 as scheduled, its CEO Brian Dames said on Tuesday.

"In case of Medupi... we (are) concerned about the performance of particularly one contractor on our side, and from our own perspective I am concerned about the schedule and the fact that the first unit will come online next year," Dames told parliamentarians during a briefing on the company's annual results to end-March.

He said the Kusile power plant was still on schedule to come on line in late 2014.
