  • What are the implications for South Africa and the rest of the continent?
  • How can the REIPP Program be resumed in a sustainable way with Round 5 ?

2019 promises to be another very active year for independent power producers and energy projects throughout Africa.

There is huge international investor focus on African energy projects and the role of IPPs due to the power shortages and load shedding in the various regions and the increasing demand for energy amongst the growing economies. Opportunities for projects using both renewable and thermal technologies are expanding.

South Africa’s Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Power Producer’s Procurement Programme (REIPPP) has controversially stalled their program for a number of years. What are the implications for South Africa and the rest of the continent? How can the REIPP program be re-ignited? These are the issues that will be discussed at 6th Independent Power Producers and Power Purchase Agreements Conference (IPP & PPA Conference).

What else will be discussed? The IPP & PPA Conference will unpack the elements needed to understand structuring a bankable power purchase agreement (PPA) with the necessary knowledge on the key features of a PPA and when to use one. Added to this will be discussions relating to the African Independent Power Producer (IPP) market, what we need to know about energy projects in Africa, financing the projects as well as understanding the legal and regulatory environments. The growth of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) will also be expanded upon in the conference and understanding how an IPP can successfully engage in a PPP. Click here to view program

Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
