As the government gets to grips with the need for big rises in domestic generation, the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Board has granted Tlou Energy approval for a 50MW coalbed methane project at Lesedi, five times larger than the 10MW applied for. “The initial proposal submitted by Tlou Energy was for a 10MW gas-to-power pilot project. The expected 50MW project approval is a welcome development and in line with the company’s plans to expand the Lesedi project to supply 50MW of power in the medium term in modular stages,” the AIM and ASX-listed company said.
