DoE tests market appetite for three new public-private solar parks
Author: Terence Creamer
In a newspaper advert, the DoE indicated that an expression of interest (EoI) would be released on May 16 to determine private sector interest in being appointed as strategic partners for the projects.
The responses, which would need to be returned by June 20, would be used to inform procurement documentation, which would be “released in due course”. A similar procurement model was also envisaged for the development of a 600 MW gas-fired power plant, which was the subject of a separate EoI process. The procurement process would be facilitated through a Ministerial determination for 1 500 MW of new solar capacity, which would be published by Energy Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson.
