The Tower Property Fund, which upon listing on the JSE in July 2013 set a clear strategy of occupancy cost reduction across the board, with a strong focus on "greening", has continued to make good on its intentions and is currently rolling out green measures to several buildings within the fund’s portfolio.

The City of Cape Town, in partnership with Eskom and the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA), launched Cape Town’s Energy Efficiency Forum (EEF) in 2009 to assist commercial buildings and operations in improving their energy efficiency.

National Treasury has revised downwards South Africa’s economic growth to 1.5%.

Dr Andrew Golding CEO of Pam Golding Property Group and CEO of Jawitz Properties Herschel Jawitz comment on the impact of the 25 basis point interest hike on the property market.

National Treasury has announced that government has sold its stake in Vodacom to the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) to raise funds for a R23 billion allocation to Eskom.

The National Energy Regulator (NERSA) has rejected Eskom’s selective reopener of the third Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD3) Open Cycle Gas Turbines (OCGTs), which would have resulted in a total price increase of 25.3% for 2015/16.

Purchases of electricity by municipalities have decreased by 4.4% between the quarters ended December 2014 and March 2015, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) said on Tuesday.

Eskom says it is set to continue with planned maintenance during the winter months, while the power utility also dispelled prospects of a total electricity blackout.

South Africa’s economy is expected to grow by three percent by 2017 as the country has taken several steps to address the challenge of energy, says Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene.

The cost of living in the country's economic hub will rise substantially as of July 1.
