SolarReserve, Kensani and Intikon Energy consortium is awarded further 88MW by South African DoE

The South African Department of Energy (DoE) has awarded a further 88MW of PV projects to the consortium consisting of SolarReserve, the Kensani Group and Intikon Energy. After the two 75MW projects Letsatsi and Lesedi Power Project, the Jasper solar energy project in Northern Cape is the third project the consortium has been awarded preferred bidder status. This brings the total of the projects to 238MW.  

The second round of awards was officially announced in May 2012 and, like the first round of biddings, preferred bidders receive the right to sell the generated power to South African utility Eskom under a 20-year PPA.

"Intikon Energy and its partners are committed to the objectives of the renewable energy procurement process in South Africa," Stephen Donnelly, managing director of Intikon Energy said. "Alongside the generation of clean sustainable energy, economic development and job creation are a fundamental objective of the Jasper Power Company Consortium and Intikon Energy. The success of the Jasper PV project will undoubtedly have a long-term positive social and economic impact on the communities it is associated with."

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
