Distributed generation investment may ‘grind to halt' if Eskom's retail tariff reforms are implemented 'overnight'

Economic and energy advisory company Meridian Economics is warning that the immediate implementation of Eskom's proposed retail tariff plan could severely disincentivise investment into the large distributed generation plants required to reduce or end load-shedding. The plan, which the utility says is necessary to rebalance variable and fixed charges in light of technology changes under way in the sector, has already met with stiff opposition from some residential customers and opposition political parties after the plan was submitted to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa for approval. There has been particular anxiety over reports that Eskom customers with solar systems will be charged a ‘levy' of more than R930 a month to remain grid connected; reports that Eskom has refuted, stating the restructuring will apply to all customers and forms part of a ‘revenue neutral' effort to modernise the tariff structure to be more cost reflective. The utility has acknowledged, however, that individual customers may pay more or less, depending on the changes approved and their consumption profiles. In a new briefing paper, Meridian Economics says it supports the restructuring of Eskom's tariffs to become more cost-reflective. However, it raises concerns about what impact the proposed changes will have on the nascent distributed generation market, and in particular on those large independent power producer (IPP) facilities that intend wheeling electricity to multiple smaller customers. This market has been stimulated only recently by a reform that initially raised the licence-exemption threshold from 1 MW to 100 MW – a cap that is in the process of being eliminated entirely in line with interventions announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on July 25 to tackle the worsening load-shedding crisis. However, Meridian warns that a large portion of the wheeling market for IPP power could “grind to a halt for several years” if the tariff restructuring being sought by Eskom were to be implemented from April 1, 2023, as proposed. The paper asserts that, while the rebalancing might be appropriate in a market that has sufficient supply, it is “fundamentally counterproductive” in a market that is short of energy, as it sends the incorrect pricing signals to generation investors and purchasers of power. It also presupposes that Eskom is indeed able to provide generation “backup” to customers when it patently is not able to do so, Meridian adds. The analysis shows that under the prevailing tariff structure, there is sufficient margin for a customer entering into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with a wheeling solar photovoltaic (PV) or wind IPP to achieve a meaningful saving of at least 10% on their electricity bill for both PV and wind wheeling projects. Should the new tariff structure be implemented next year, however, there will be a 25% decrease in the value of PV energy that is wheeled, and a 15% decrease in the value of wheeled wind energy. The calculations emerged from an analysis of how changes to time-of-use periods and the introduction of fixed standby or generation capacity charges, together with commensurate reductions to the energy charges, will affect 100 MW wheeling wind and PV IPPs. “This reduced value proposition has the potential to delay investments towards the end of the decade, once the overall Eskom tariff has increased and the market PPA range has decreased sufficiently to offer a meaningful saving to the customer.” To address this unintended consequence at a time when the country is seeking to accelerate rather than retard investment in distributed generation, Meridian says Eskom should commit not to implement the restructuring “overnight in 2023”. To further reduce the regulatory uncertainty for investors created by these proposals, clarity should be provided on how and when these reforms will be implemented in a way that does not undermine the required market expansion. “While further detailed work will be required...

The COVID-19 pandemic almost instantly threw a multi-year wrench into global supply chains — and highlighted the advantages of more compact logistics operations.For many U.S. companies, that has meant reshoring manufacturing operations from lower-wage nations back to the States.But for manufacturers in China who want to keep a foothold in the North American market, it means finding a way to get its operations closer to their end-markets.And if it also means getting around U.S. tariffs, all the better.Bloomberg recently detailed the trend of Chinese manufacturers sending both operations and personnel to new facilities in Mexico, where — under a revamped North American trade pact — products aren't subject to the tariffs imposed on Chinese-made goods.Chinese investment in Mexico was already on the rise, growing from $154 million in 2016 to more than $270 million in 2017 amid heightened trade tensions between the U.S. and China. By last year, persistent supply-chain headaches and a tech crackdown by Chinese officials fueled an increase to nearly $500 million.Bloomberg noted that materials and labor in Mexico are more expensive than China, but that gap is closing — just as tariffs and logistics costs take their toll.The article particularly looked at Hofusan Industrial Park, a former cattle ranch outside Monterrey about 100 miles from the border. The site housed one facility three years ago; today, there's 11, including electronics company Hisense and auto-parts maker Hangzhou XZB.Officials expect 35 facilities and some 15,000 workers in the industrial park in coming years — about 10% of which would be managers from China.

After updating some key cost assumptions, Eskom has confirmed that it will be applying for a 32% tariff hike for implementation on April 1, 2023. The State-owned utility is also applying for a 9.74% increase for its subsequent financial year. The increases are outlined in an addendum to Eskom's fifth multiyear price determination (MYPD5) application, which contains changes to various key assumptions, including those relating to the cost and use of diesel for its open-cycle gas turbines (OCGTs), as well as independent power producer (IPP) costs. The addendum also outlines a large increase in the depreciation allowance, which accounts for 10.67% of the 32.02% being sought. Eskom argues that the depreciation adjustment arises from an “incorrect” regulatory asset base (RAB) valuation by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) in a 2021 tariff decision, whereby the regulator reduced Eskom's RAB from over R1.2-trillion to about R550-billion. Eskom subsequently took the RAB aspect of the decision on legal review and a ruling could be made prior to the next Nersa tariff determination. The 2024 financial year hike outlined in the addendum is slightly below the 38.1% increase contained in a Nersa consultation paper released in July. That paper was published following a court order stipulating that Nersa adjudicate at least Eskom's 2024 financial year application under the existing MYPD methodology and make a final determination by December 24. Written comments had to be submitted by September 8 and public hearings will be held from September 19 to 23, with Nersa indicating that it plans to make a decision on November 7. Following a court order in 2021, the Energy Regulator adjudicated only the first year of the three-year MYPD5 application, which was submitted in June 2021 and covered the three financial years of 2023, 2024 and 2025. A 9.61% hike was approved for 2023 financial year and was implemented on April 1, 2022, raising Eskom's allowable revenue to R264-billion for the year. Eskom had applied for a 20.5% increase. The Nersa consultation paper published in July in relation to the 2024 and 2025 financial years also arose following a court order stipulating that Nersa adjudicate at least the 2024 financial year application under the existing MYPD methodology, as a new methodology was yet to be finalised. The increase outlined by Eskom in its updated MYPD5 submission is still based on the allowable revenue figure of R335-billion included in the original 2021 application. After RCA and court-ordered revenue allowances, however, the figure rises to R351-billion. That larger revenue figure includes R15-billion arising from settlement reached after the Supreme Court of Appeal ordered that the remaining portion of a R69-billion government equity injection, which was found to have been deducted incorrectly from Eskom's MYPD4 revenue, be recouped. In terms of the settlement, the outstanding R59-billion would be recovered during the financial years from 2024 to 2027. The R351-billion revenue figure also includes an amount of R1.7-billion arising from a R3.4-billion RCA amount awarded to Eskom, which it has not yet liquidated. Despite a slight upward adjustment to assumed sales for the year, the standard tariff would need to rise by 32% next year for Eskom to secure the full allowable revenue being sought. As has become the norm, the request will be strongly resisted by stakeholders during public hearings. Besides the large depreciation amount outlined, the other two major contributors to the 32% requests relate to primary-energy costs, which make up 7.85% of the increase being sought and IPP costs, which comprise 9.05% BIG RISE IN DIESEL COSTS OUTLINED The main driver behind the primary energy cost rise is a revision to Eskom's assumption regarding diesel, the price of which has increased materially since Russian's invasion of Ukraine.

It's August 17th. You're listening to the President's Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Welcome to a special edition of the PDB this morning: a Big Five Update. Five critical updates on stories we've covered previously that are shaping America — and the world. First, Joe Biden signed the climate change bill yesterday, but there's a problem already with solar panels and slave labor. We'll discuss. Second, electricity prices hit a record high in Europe yesterday, and some businesses there are starting to shut down. I'll explain the latest. Third, the Biden Administration has increased its aid to Ukraine, this time to help them pay down their national deficit. I've got those details. Fourth, America's tariffs on Chinese products are likely to stay put, all because of Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. I'll explain the connection. Finally, a man robbed a bank in Lebanon last week to get his own money. We'll talk about how this curious crime illustrates how desperate things are in that Middle Eastern country. And finally, one last thing before I let you go. A question from Brandon and Rafeal on how to persuade in-laws when talking politics. Oh this'll be fun. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief. Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Michael Zezas: The Impact of Tariff Relief

As media reports indicate a possible tariff reduction on imports from China, some investors are wondering if this is signaling a return of modest trade barriers and unfettered investment between the U.S. and China.-----Transcript-----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Michael Zezas, Head of Public Policy Research and Municipal Strategy for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues, bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the intersection between U.S. public policy and financial markets. It's Wednesday, July 6th, at 1 p.m. in New York. If media reports citing White House sources are to be believed, the U.S. is getting closer to reducing some tariffs on imports from China, motivated at least in part by trying to ease inflation pressures. This has prompted some investors to ask us if we think this is a signal that the U.S./China economic relationship is starting to head back toward what it was before 2018, where trade barriers between the two countries were modest, and U.S. corporate investment in China was largely unfettered. In short, we do not think this is the case and rather expect that the U.S. and China will continue on its current path of drawing up more barriers to commerce between them, particularly in the areas of new and emerging technologies. Let's break it down. Consider that the scope of the tariff reductions being reported is quite small. One report, citing a Biden administration official, suggested tariffs could be reduced on about $10 billion worth of goods, a sliver of the $370 billion of goods currently under tariff. Given that taking away all the tariffs would only result in shaving a few tenths of a percent off consumer price index growth, this modest change, though reportedly intended to curb inflation, is unlikely to be a meaningful inflation fighter. That suggests the U.S. continues to prioritize its long term competition goals with China over inflation concerns, which is not surprising given continued skepticism among U.S. voters of both parties over the role of China in the global economy. This leads to another important point, that tariff relief could counterintuitively accelerate U.S. policies that create commerce barriers with China. In line with our expectations, media reports suggest a tariff relief announcement could be paired with news of a fresh Section 301 investigation, which is the process to kick off a new round of tariffs that could be imposed on China. Again, this makes sense when accounting for the long term policy goals of the U.S., as well as the political considerations in a midterm election year. So bottom line, don't read too much into tariff relief if it's announced. The U.S. and China are likely to continue drawing up barriers, and accordingly rewiring the global economy as companies shift supply chains and end market strategies. This is 'slowbalization' in motion, and it will continue to drive challenges, such as margin pressure for U.S. multinationals, and opportunities, such as for key sectors like semiconductor capital equipment companies benefiting from a new wave of geopolitical CapEx.
