20 May 2013 With South Africa confirmed as a key partner, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has announced October 2015 as the launch date for construction of the first phase of what could eventually be the largest hydroelectric plant in the world. The Grand Inga project on the Congo River is expected, once all the phases are complete, to generate a massive 40 000 MW of electricity, bringing renewable power to half of the African continent. The initialling of a historic energy cooperation treaty between the DRC and South Africa in Lubumbashi in March was a key milestone in the process of bringing the project, first conceived in the early 1970s, closer to fruition. At a meeting in Paris on the weekend, organised by the DRC government and with a high-level South African delegation in attendance, a range of stakeholders consulted on the implementation of the first phase of the project, Inga 3, which is expected to cost in the region of US$12-billion and produce almost 4 800 MW of electricity. Two existing dams, Inga 1 and 2, have been in operation since 1972 and 1982 respectively, together generating nearly 1 800 MW. In terms of the March treaty, South Africa “expects to purchase a significant share of the electricity production of the new dam, thus confirming itself as a key partner,” the DRC government said in a statement on Saturday. “As such, the Republic of South Africa will take 2 500 MW of the 4 800 MW of future power production of Inga 3, thereby becoming the principal purchaser.” Garrith Bezuidenhoudt, chief of staff in South Africa’s Department of Energy, said in the statement that the South African government had “affirmed our commitment to the project by already provisioning for this purchase in our budgetary plan”. Inga 3 is expected to fill the power gap in the DRC, with its fast-growing population and expanding industries, and to help meet burgeoning demand in South Africa. Subsequent phases, adding up to an eventual total capacity of 40 000 MW, will allow countries in southern Africa, north-east Africa and parts of west Africa to benefit from production at the site. “Grand Inga will thus provide more than half of the continent with renewable energy at a low price,” Bruno Kalala, the DRC’s minister of water resources and electricity, told Saturday’s meeting. However, Kalala said, issues around transport and connectivity had yet to be addressed. “Inga is a factor for integration, at both a regional and international level.” According to the DRC government, three consortia are competing to develop the project: Sinohydro and Three Gorges Corporation from China, the operator of China’s Three Gorges dam, currently the world’s largest; Actividades de Construccion y Servicios, Eurofinsa and AEE from Spain; and the Daewoo-Posco-SNC Lavalin consortium from Korea and Canada. The Africa Development Bank, which has been involved in the project since 2009, is financing the base studies and consultants, and has been joined by the World Bank, the French Development Agency, the European Investment Bank and the Development Bank of Southern Africa. “The question of financing is a major issue in the selection process,” said Hela Cheikhrouhou, director for energy environment and climate change at the African Development Bank. “It is the public-private partnership financing solutions which will be vital for the success of the project.” SAinfo reporter

A lot of what is written is written in a way that suggests that the opposite of what is being discussed would be better.Yesterday I happened upon an article in the Economist titled “In Praise of Laziness,” in which the author suggested that there is too great a focus on working hard. He suggested that Sheryl Sandberg’s advice that women should “lean in” was problematic. He also suggested that John Bernard’s idea that one should do “Business at the Speed of Now” and my friend, Michael Port’s book title “Book Yourself Solid” were indicative of a world in which people are trying to do too much.Reading the first paragraph would give one the idea that they should “lean back,” being passive and reactive instead of intentional and proactive about their careers and their work. If business at the speed of now is a bad idea, perhaps one should do “business at the speed of later?” Even though it’s clear the author has never read Port’s book, one would believe that you should book yourself in such a way as to ensure that you have less business than you need to sustain your business.These are poorly chosen straw men, having nothing whatsoever to do with the primary suggestion to spend more time reflecting and thinking and less time with unnecessary meetings, make work, and email. But the article provides an excellent example of describing something as negative in a way that makes it appear as if its opposite is better.The opposite of cold calling is portrayed as being social media. The opposite of interrupting the client is waiting for them to initiate a conversation. The opposite of outbound is inbound. The opposite of gaining commitments is allowing the prospective client to determine what comes next and when.What is wrong with each of these examples is that they are shown as opposites. They are presented in such a way as to make them appear mutually exclusive. One prospecting medium does not preclude another. One choice to interrupt your prospective client with a call doesn’t suggest that other approaches are not helpful. The decision to gain the commitments that move deals forward in no way eliminates a collaborative conversation about what comes next.It’s not “this” or “that.” It is “this” and “that,” in the right measure, at the right time, as it pertains to a certain outcome.
