Employment in the Southern African Power Pool


BACKGROUND TO POWER TRADING IN THE SAPP
In 2001, the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) started the short-term energy market (STEM) as a precursor to a full competitive electricity market the SAPP was going to develop. In 2007, the operation of STEM came to an end due to limited power supply on the market and also there was no reserved transmission capacity for it.
In 2006, the SAPP received a grant from the government of Norway and Sida to develop a full competitive electricity market in the form of a day-ahead market (DAM). The market was completed in 2007 but implementation and making the market go live was delayed due to the transmission pricing project which should have provided nodal pricing for transmission wheeling and losses. The period from 2007 to 2009 was therefore used to test the operations of the DAM and to make improvements where applicable. The DAM went live in December of 2009 with few participants in the market.
In 2008, the Markets Development Working Group (MDWG) which used to operate under the SAPP Operating Sub-Committee (OSC) was made into a fully-fledged Markets Sub-Committee (MSC) with a mandate to report directly to the SAPP Management Committee (MANCO). The MSC is under the leadership of a chairperson elected by SAPP Member Utilities of the MSC on a yearly basis. The MSC chairperson can only chair for a consecutive period of two years.
In order to support the activities of the MSC, the SAPP created a department within the SAPP, called the Market Operations and Developments Department (MODD), to be headed by a Chief Market Analyst (CMA) and under him/her to be supported by the Energy Trading Officer and the Energy Market Analyst (EMA).
