  • ABL claimed that about 1.5 GW of the energy yield assessment job is associated with nine potential solar PV developments in South Africa.
  • The continuing to be 500 MW is for 2 prospective onshore wind farms.

ABL Group- an energy and also aquatic consultancy-- has actually claimed that it been acquired by various designers to offer energy return assessment for greater than 2 GW of potential solar as well as wind power plants in South Africa.

ABL held that the energy return evaluation solutions are being given as part of technical due diligence into the proposed sites, to be submitted to the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). The Programme is a state-led campaign to increase power generation from renewable energy sources including solar, onshore wind, tiny hydro, along with garbage dump gas, biomass and also biogas. If the bids achieve success, they will proceed to monetary close, complied with by the building phase.
