Risk mitigation power procurement programme

South Africa: The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy intends to launch a Risk Mitigation Power Purchase Programme to alleviate the current electricity supply constraints in the immediate to medium-term.

The Department would therefore welcome responses from existing projects, projects that are currently under development and new projects from all technologies which could be considered for procurement under a Risk Mitigation Power Purchase Procurement Programme. The objective of the Request for Information is to analyse options to procure between 2000 – 3000 MWs of power generation capacity that can be grid connected in the shortest time at the least possible cost.

To facilitate the preparation of the RFI Response, Respondents may access the website www.ipp-projects.co.za or www.doe.gov.za or www.dmr.gov.za where the Document can be downloaded. The RFI Response must be submitted to the Department during office hours and by no later than 31 January 2020 at 10h00, at the following address:
