Research Reports:   2019   -   By James Larmuth & Alberto Cuellar

This study focuses on the implementation of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) projects in South Africa under the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). It discusses the status of seven CSP projects with a total capacity of 600 MW, including those that are operational, under construction, and in the pre-financial close phase. The study is conducted by Mott MacDonald, which serves as a Technical Advisor for all seven projects, supporting the Lenders or the Owners throughout the development, construction, and operation phases. The research builds upon previous work from 2015 and aims to provide an updated perspective on the REIPPPP, highlighting challenges and lessons learned in the process.
