Overview :

The South African Wind Energy Project Phase 2 (SAWEP 2) is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) with the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) as the Executing Entity/Implementing Partner, and supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) South Africa Country Office.  The project objective is to overcome barriers to the attainment of South Africa’s 2010 Integrated Resource Plan target of 3,320 MW of wind power generation online by 2018/19.

The objective of this assignment is to conduct a study and submit a report and research findings supplemented by recommendations and Value Matrix Diagram that can be used by the South African Government and stakeholders in the determination of a procurement policy position regarding grid-tied/off-grid inverters as part of a masterplan for the renewable energy industry in South Africa.

It is therefore necessary to re-evaluate local supply of the local market and whether it can supply the total range of products (grid/off grid inverters) in the volumes demanded and to the required quality and testing specifications.

The consultant is required but not limited to focus on  areas of assessment by making use of relevant documentation and conducting a desktop study which is supported through consultation with stakeholders and recommendations based on strategic analyses (e.g. SWOT, gap analysis, macro-economic, value chain) of its findings.
