Event Overview

The Role of IPP & PPA in meeting Africa’s energy demands

There is huge international investor focus on African energy projects and the role of IPPs due to the power shortages and load shedding in the various regions and the increasing demand for energy amongst the growing economies. Opportunities for projects using renewable, mini-grid and storage technologies is expanding. South Africa’s Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Power Producer’s Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) launched an IPP development boom in the region; now there is investment across the continent in various technologies and project development opportunities.

This event serves as a knowledge hub for industry professionals, investors, and enthusiasts, offering insights into the evolving landscape of renewable energy, mini-grid solutions, and storage technologies. Delve into discussions on the future of the decentralized/corporate IPP/PPA sector, navigate challenges related to wheeling, and strategize on overcoming them. Gain understanding of bankability issues, consolidation concerns, and the appropriate risk allocation in the independent power producer sector. Uncover the role of hybrid power facilities, thermal technologies, and related ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues shaping the trajectory of the IPP/PPA sector.

Join us for a vital exploration of Africa’s energy sector at the upcoming IPP & PPA Conference.
