The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) expects the South African wind market to return to “full health” in the coming year, following more than two years of uncertainty.

The council’s latest Global Wind Report, which deals with market developments for 2017, notes that the South African renewable energy sector has been through “challenging times”, owing to a long-running dispute with Eskom over the signing of power purchase agreements (PPAs) for projects procured in 2015.
