In July 2022, South Africa announced new measures to counter act the country’s load shedding crisis. The measures are sought to drastically increase South Africa's generation capacity and double the capacity requested in Bid Window 6, by eliminating the generation licensing cap. Additional measures include incentivising embedded content generation and grid connections besides a pragmatic approach to local content requirements. The upcoming AM-Powering Connexions session “Evolving energy procurement landscape - driving factors and new challenges” will focus on the importance of thoroughly discussing all the proposed regulatory changes in order to ensure their effectiveness and efficiency to reduce load shedding hours.
The discussion never stops: before, during and after the session the AM-Powering Connexions LinkedIn group will be at disposal of the South African stakeholders to share content, insights and opinions. Participation is free of charge, however, we kindly ask to officially request to join (button below).
After each meeting, all the participants will receive a brief, highlighting topics of the month, points raised during the discussion, emerging insights and suggested readings on the topic.
