The South African Department of Energy has called for comments on the REIPPP RfP documentation, ahead of the release of the next bidding window RfP’s in 2016. The call for comments can be found on the IPP website’s press centre. Comments can be submitted between the 3rd August and the 2nd September 2015. The DoE aims to issue the RfP for REIPPP Bidding window 5 early 2016.
There is more useful information on this website and I recommend having if a look, if you were not previously aware of it. Some things that are of interest:
- a list of all projects awarded under window 4, along with the project price and ED score
- information on the other IPP procurement programmes being run alongside REIPPP (e.g. coal, SPIPPs etc)
- IPP programme overview and status reports
- ALL of the window 4 RfP documentation. This means all the parts, all the volumes and all the appendices. You have to register on the site to access these.
The registered section of the site is also comments can be submitted.
Here’s a graphic that the DoE put together in their press release calling for comments. Interesting numbers in there.
