Overview of the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (IPP Program) Bruce Linke Finance and Projects 30 April 2012
Context: energy in South Africa Energy crisis 2008 Frequent and widespread blackouts = affect output in mining and other key industries Recognised as significant constraint on development and investment Further prioritisation of renewable energy development in the Integrated Resource Plan 2010 to reflect the White Paper on Renewable Energy 2003
Shift to nuclear and renewable energy under Integrated Resource Plan 2010 65%
New Capacity under the Integrated Resource Plan 2010
IPP Program: Policy context Initial SA renewables policy (March 2009): Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff Government to purchase output from qualifying renewable energy generators at pre-determined prices Changed policy (Jul 2011): IPP Program Competitive bid process based on price competition to drive value for money Bidders bid the price which will be payable by the Buyer pursuant to the PPA between the Buyer and the Project Company of a Preferred Bidder Price bid should not exceed the cap allocated for each technology in the RFP
IPP Program: Not to exceed prices TechnologyCommercial Energy Rate (ZAR) Commercial Energy Rate (AUD) Onshore windR 1,150/Mwh$140 Solar PVR 2,850/Mwh$347 Solar CSPR 2,850/Mwh$347 BiomassR 1,070/Mwh$130 BiogasR 800/Mwh$98 Landfill gasR 840/Mwh$102 Small hydroR 1,030/Mwh$126

IPP Program: Phase 1 53 bids were evaluated by the DoE 28 bids, representing a total of 1,416MW were selected as preferred bidders Key evaluation criteria: 70% price 30% meeting economic development criteria (localisation)
IPP Program: Phase 1 18 Solar PV projects, totaling 631.54MW- 43.6% of the total planned allocation of 1,450MW for solar PV. 2 Solar CSP projects, totaling 150MW of total allocation of 200MW, representing 75% of the total available capacity of 200MW for solar CSP. 8 Wind projects were selected, totaling 633.99MW, representing 34.3% of the total available capacity of 1,850MW. A total of 2,209MW remains to be allocated in the remaining phases to all technologies to make up the total allocation of 3,625MW earmarked for the RE IPP process.

IPP Program: Challenges Ambitious procurement and construction deadlines Project financing - Lenders taking risk across a number of Projects Conservative approach to risk in new technologies Physical constraints – grid access and capacity Environmental and planning approvals to be in place prior to financial close Offshore expertise to deliver projects
