Précis:A capacity of 200 MW has been allocated for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in Window 3 of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers (RE-IPP) program, according to a statement made by the Department of Energy (DoE), South Africa’s energy policy maker.
This follows a great deal of debate in the South African CSP renewable energy industry as to whether there would be a CSP allocation at all in Window 3, and if so what the MW allocation would be.
Up until now the DoE had only issued a very general statement regarding CSP capacity going forward. DoE spokesperson, Thandiwe Maimane, said earlier this month that while the third round would most probably be dominated by PV and wind energy, the DoE is “mindful of the need to allocate additional megawatts for CSP in the third window”.Image:Banner Ad:Banner URL:Premium`:No
