REIPPP updated list of preferred bidders – up to bidding window four

I have updated the overall list of preferred bidders (previous post here) based on this morning’s DoE media announcement.

Press release from the DoE found here: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=566339060135913&id=316555815114240

Big news items:

  • Financial close for Round 4 expected for Q4 this year
  • Additional capacity to be allocated to round 4.  Word on the street is that this is in the region of 1GW
  • Another 1.8GW may be allocated to an additional procurement round (Round 4.5).  This would be an expedited application process, open to bidders who were unsuccessful in previous rounds.  A good opportunity for developers to get returns on their development costs…
  • Round 5 due to be issued next year, with updates to the RFP
  • Finally, the DoE intends to apply for a further allocation of 6.3GW of RE capacity.

Bid day folks.  Big day.

A nice summary of REIPPP Round 4 preferred bidders

Done, I believe, by ED Consulting.  I haven’t seen any formal announcements, but the ferreting fairies have been working hard since the letters were issued.

Well done to all who have been successful thus far.  We wait with bated breath for any further announcements.  I have heard rumours of expectations of a Round 4.5 being announced on Friday…

When the formal announcement from the DoE comes out I will update the table of all preferred bidders and reissue to all who’d like it.

Summary of projects under the South African renewable energy independent power producer procurement programme

I am constantly looking for a summary of what has been awarded under the three (and a half) REIPPP rounds to date, and so thought I would put this on here, for my records as much as for your information.  I figure if I’m looking for it, someone else must be too.
