Researchers at PV Insider have completed work on the PV South Africa Market Update and Projects Map 2013, which provides an exclusive breakdown of the progress made in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP. Furthermore, the industry guide examines the impact that delays to Round III of the REIPPP have had on the solar-PV market in South Africa.
PV Insider have also developed an exclusive map that details the size and location of 27 PV plants that successfully won bids in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP. The map also provides global horizontal irradiance data for South Africa and the projects are overlaid to show their location on the GHI map.
Global horizontal irradiation in South Africa varies between 1600 to 2300 kWh/m2, and the PV Plants Map South Africa includes GHI data collected from 1994-2012. This has been made available to the industry to enable a better understanding of South Africa’s highly esteemed solar resources, and to give developers the tools they need to select the best location to develop plants in this region
