South Africa has started a process that could lead to it adding up to 9,600 megawatts of nuclear power to its national grid. The country's department of energy said the cabinet had earlier this month given the green light to issue a request for proposals from the nuclear industry. The request would be put to the cabinet for approval before a request was issued for formal bids. It gave no timeframe for the process but the broader plan to boost nuclear power extends over the coming 15 years.
