SAVi for the Assessment of Energy, Mining Projects in South Africa

In collaboration with the Centre for Environmental Rights, we will develop SAVi assessments for the Thabametsi coal power plant and for the Mabola mining project in South Africa. The Thabametsi assessment will include a comparison with other energy technologies. It will provide an analysis of the financial viability of the project under climate- and water-stress scenarios and include a valuation of social and environmental externalities. The Mabola assessment will look at the impact and financial viability of the interventions that aim to mitigate the impact of the mining activity in the area. Both assessments will make use of customized SAVi models with locally sourced data.
