AM-Powering Connexions: Risk Mitigation IPP Tender Review



AM-Powering Connexions: Risk Mitigation IPP Tender Review

The second digital event for AM-Powering Connexions, part of a series of virtual events organized by the RES4Africa Foundation, will take place on the 23rd of March 2021 at 9 am (South Africa time zone).

AM-Powering Connexions aim at connecting stakeholders in the energy sector in order to promote an interesting and valuable exchange of ideas generating a vision and exploring new opportunities in the energy sector in South Africa.
The series of events is organised by the RES4Africa Foundation in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Pretoria, CSIR, Nedbank, SAESA, SAPVIA and SAWEA.

The theme of this second event is the review of the Risk Mitigation IPP Procurement Programme, covering various aspects, such as the impact of a combination of renewable energy and batteries on grid stability, an agnostic approach effect on renewables’ PPA and and the development of a local industry.

The discussion will be guided and facilitated by Joanne Dean, board member of SAESA, and Ntombifuthi Ntuli, CEO of SAWEA, framing the main challenges and opportunities their members faced during the preparation and submission process of the tender and future newly opened alternative evolution of the electricity market in SA.

A keynote round table will be opened by Niveshen Govender COO of SAPVIA and Mikhail Nikomarov, CEO of Bushveld Energy and Chairman of SAESA, presenting their experiences and views on the combined potential that renewables and storage systems can provide to grid stability as well as to energy access.
