Investing in appropriate technologies

Eskom invested R156.2 million into researching and developing technologies that could reduce its carbon footprint and improve technical and safety performance. This is 20% lower than research investment in the previous year (R195.3 million).

The research and development department has made good progress on its portfolio for the year, especially on 18 high priority projects. Key amongst these is the online boiler monitor, Waterberg coal evaluation and high frequency electrostatic precipitator projects which are all on track. The focus on high impact, high value project identification and delivery will continue. This requires increased effort on project management systems and practices and alignment with the real needs of the business.

Eskom achieved ISO 9001 certification (quality management systems) and is in the process of obtaining certification for safety, health and environmental management for its various divisions and units. It is also working with the South African Bureau of Standards to identify additional specialist ISO standards that need to be implemented for its various divisions.
