South African Independent Power Producers Association (SAIPPA)

Mission

The goals of the Independent Power Producers Association of South Africa are to promote the collective interests of IPP's in South Africa, to assist with public policy formation and implementation, and to serve as a platform for information dissemination to its members.

We seek to pro-actively engage with legislators, government officials, planners and regulators as part of our initiatives to achieve energy security in South, as well as Southern Africa.

Independent Power Producers

An Independent Power Producer is an entity, which is not a public electric utility, but which owns and or operates facilities to generate electric power for sale to a utility, central government buyer and end users. IPP's may also be privately-held facilities, such as rural solar or wind energy producers, and non-energy industrial concerns generating electric power for on-site use and who may also be capable of feeding excess energy into the distribution or transmission grid system.

Membership

The IPP’s and Companies participation in the association promote the interests of independent power producers in Southern Africa, with due regard for the prescripts and limitations imposed by the Competition Act.

SAIPPA seeks to pro-actively engage with legislators, government officials, planners and regulators as part of our initiatives to achieve energy security in South, as well as Southern Africa.
