Industry celebrates as updated IRP gives large allocation boost

The wind energy sector has applauded the release of the 2016 update of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) and the accompanying public consultation process that will enable all South Africans to engage electricity planners on investment choices – transparently and with a focus on least-cost.

South African Wind Energy Association (SAWEA) CEO Brenda Martin welcomes the update from the Department of Energy. “It’s common knowledge that the IRP has been outdated since 2013 and many of us have been feeding into the ongoing consultation process of this policy since 2010. The generous allocation given to wind here will assist with increasing confidence in the market and ensures that we can see a clear picture of how our industry will develop as make the transition toward decarbonisation.”READ MORE
