South Africa: Renewables ticking over but no announcement on third round

Issue 271 - 13 Feb 2014 | 3 minute read

Renewable energy projects are making progress as the industry waits for a government decision on whether to increase the capacity allocated to the third round of the renewable energy independent power producers procurement programme (REIPPP) and the outcome of public consultation for the revised Integrated Resource Plan (AE 268/5). While energy minister Dikobe Ben Martins barely mentioned the issue in a speech to the Energy Leaders’ Roundtable on 11 February, an extended third bid round for concentrated solar power is due to take place in March. Bid registration will take place on 3 March with submissions due on 31 March.
