|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.
This research is being commissioned in support of the development of the South African Renewable Energy Masterplan (SAREM). The global renewable energy market and associated supply chains have seen considerable growth and changes in market dynamics over the last years. With the view to growth of the short- to medium-term renewable energy market in South Africa, and the potential benefits that could accrue to South Africa of attendant localization, it is of interest to revisit the full spectrum of renewable energy components to identify efficient local production opportunities in the short to medium term.
The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) has been tasked, by the Presidency, to be the lead department in drafting the South African Renewable Energy Masterplan (SAREM). the dtic, represented by the CD: Green Industries, has been designated as a supporting department and is tasked with those sections of the Masterplan which deal with localization of renewable energy technologies and components and renewable energy industrial development.
The consultant is required but not limited to conducting a desktop study which is supported through consultation with stakeholders (such as suppliers and manufacturers) and make recommendations based on a strategic analyses of the findings:
- Co-benefits of local production
- A per job efficiency of local production
- Potential for global scale
- Risk matrix
