Wind Energy in South Africa has been expanding dramatically, growing from 10 MW installed in 2011 to 1980 MW past financial close in 2015, with about a third commercially operational, a third approaching commissioning and a third about to commence construction. Growth is strong, with projections of 6,000 MW installed by end of 2020. At present, the wind sector is already about USD 4.2 billion strong in the country.
The webcast will contextualise and detail these issues and provide thoughts on how best to navigate the challenges.
What You'll Learn:
- Current barriers to doing business in the wind industry in South Africa and their solutions
- What changes to energy policy and grid infrastructure the South African government and the national utility is currently making and how they can benefit local wind industry growth
- Regulatory and procurement framework concerns
- How to navigate the local population during development and the importance of having competent people on the ground
