Dear Members & Friends of AfriWEA, Terrence Creamer, editor of Engineering News reports that the South African Government has confirmed that it received a total of 79 tenders, representing 3233 MW of potential power generation capacity, during the second bidding round under its renewable energy independent power producer (IPP) purchase programme, which closed on March 5.

Energy Minister Dipuo Peters said the response from IPPs was well above the 1275 MW allocated for the March window, as well as the more than 2300 MW still available for allocation under a programme that aimed to procure 3725 MW of renewables capacity that could be introduced to South Africa’s electricity network between 2014 and 2016.  The preferred bidders for the second round would be named on May 14.
