In this video from the Renewable energy Business Day Dialogue the panel of experts takes questions from the floor about whether consumers can expect to pay more for electricity from the independent power producer programme, and whether we can use all the reserves of coal that South Africa is blessed with.

There are lively debates springing up all about South Africa, driven mostly by single issues and aimed at influencing public opinion.

The Business Day Dialogues series is much broader in scope than these current debates, and aims to influence policy as well as the man and woman in the street.

Each Dialogue consists of an in-depth, two-hour panel discussion with expert speakers on a specific topic, hosted by a senior Business Day editor.

In this video the panel of experts takes questions from the floor around renewable energy and coal and whether consumers can expect to pay yet more if it all goes wrong.
