Notable progress for wind energy in SA

By Antonio Ruffini, Editor, ESI Africa

South Africa has 16 wind energy projects that have been given the go-ahead or are under construction, ranging in size from 20.6 MW to 138 MW and totalling 1,296.5 MW of generation capacity.

South Africa’s wind energy projects include Eskom’s 100 MW Sere wind farm, eight projects that got their go-ahead in the first round of South Africa’s renewable energy independent power producer programme (REIPPP) and are currently under construction; and the seven round two projects that achieved financial closure in May 2013. This is a notable achievement, considering that only three years ago South Africa’s wind sector could lay claim only to the 5.2 MW Darling wind farm in the Western Cape and Eskom’s pilot 3.2 MW Klipheuwel project, neither particularly representative of what the modern wind power sector is capable of.
