Webcast on Wind: Doing Business In South Africa
About the Webcast
South Africa has an impressive installed base of 2 GW of wind energy and is taking the lead on the African continent. Since the start of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement programme (REI4P) in 2011, over 6 GW of wind has been procured. The industry is still expecting the announcement of the next procurement round during 2019. Falling bid levels from the previous rounds have proven the competitive position of wind energy in South Africa.
This webcast will cover insights on the market outlook of South Africa and its future role for wind energy on the African continent. The guest speaker will also give the latest update on the regulatory situation and the key challenges for investments in this potential market.
