CEO VOICE – April 2022

CEO VOICE – April 2022

Dear Members

April was a very busy and fruitful month, with the opening of BW6 undeniably being the highpoint, as it signposts a period of rolling wind power procurement.  As we celebrate this REIPPPP bidding window, which will bring rise to the much-needed additional 1600MW of wind energy in SA, we simultaneously keep pushing to unblock the challenges around reaching Financial Closure of the RMIPPPP and BW5 projects, which continues to drag.

Preparations for #WINDABA 2022 are already underway and we are pleased to announce this year’s theme is “Wind Power spearheading the energy transition for accelerated growth”.  The conference programme content will hinge on five clearly defined streams, which we believe will best serve our industry, namely: Impact, Policy, Implementation, Technical and Finance.

We bid farewell to Lindo Sibiya who has completed his two year contract with us, during which he was very instrumental in successfully driving three major SAWEA events, namely the EnergyDrive, WindAc, and Windaba, in addition to a six-part Developing Developers webinar series. He spent three weeks on the road last year, traversing almost 3000km across three provinces, visiting 14 schools and reaching hundreds of learners with the EnergyDrive. We trust that you join us in wishing him well in his future endeavours.

Kind regards,

Niveshen Govender

CEO, South African Wind Energy Association
