Procurement of Renewable Energy from Independent Power Producers

We advised the Development Bank of South Africa, the National Treasury and the Department of Energy on the environmental law aspects of designing and implementing the procurement process for awarding power purchase agreements to independent renewable energy power producers. Since then we have advised clients wish to establish power plants to generate energy from wind, sun (photovoltaics and concentrated solar power), waves, ocean currents, and rivers (small-scale hydro), as well as the owners of sites and communities participating in renewable energy projects.
