Energy expert Ted Blom presented his "roadmap" to delegates at the utility conference Tuesday. This warning was in sharp contrast to Eskom interim CEO Phakamani Hadebe's address earlier the day. Hadebe told delegates Eskom plans to play a bigger role in Africa. "Energy is the lifeblood of Africa and it is a human right. It is not optional. It is essential.
