It's too soon for South Africa to start counting its chickens over the recent offshore gas find by global energy giant Total.
South Africa's president has committed to structural reforms in the energy sector.
Summer is here and the chance of blackouts is higher than normal. But the cause is unlikely to be the power station. The problem is usually much closer to home – in the local poles and wires.
The government wants the power to break up power companies if they keep prices high. There's little to suggest it would achieve much.

The energy required to power the massive, factory-sized data centres that computers rely on already consumes 5% of global electricity. And that energy load is doubling every decade.
Making the transition to a sustainable energy future also means ensuring that affected communities - such as Australia's coal workers - aren't left by the wayside.
The UK's "illegal" backup power subsidy scheme effectively subsidised fossil fuel power generation. Lets use the hiatus to build a more flexible, low carbon energy system.
Michelle Grattan speaks with Deep Saini about the week in Australian politics.
Labor's promise to subsidise batteries for households quickly became, in government parlance, “pink batts to pink batteries” – seeking to trigger memories of Rudd's policy that cost several lives.

It is possible to both tax carbon emissions and enrich households. A report to be released by UNSW today outlines how.
Even the Voyager spacecraft are controlled remotely, 20 billion kilometres away. It takes 20 hours for instructions to travel from Earth to the spacecraft but we can do it -- using a remote.
A new poll reveals many Australians want to cut their electricity bills - but many also want to reduce emissions.
Research shows that when Americans are aware of the scale of food waste, and how much energy and water are used to produce food, they support measures to reduce the problem.
Video feedback may be the nearest we have to visualising what conscious processing in the brain is like.
