This report presents the methodology and results of a study assessing increased lexibility requirements to the South African power system resulting from increased levels of renewable generation in the time frame until 2030. The study further analyses whether the existing and planned power plants will be able to cope with these requirements. Finally, the study quantifies costs associated to increased flexibility requirements imposed by variable renewables (wind and photovoltaic solar).
