  • Bwc Wind Project

    South African Grid Connected Wind Farm Programme

    Sector: Renewable energy
    Project type: Wind power

    The main objective of the South African Grid Connected Wind Farm Programme is to contribute to the development and promotion of renewable energy in South Africa by building a framework to secure carbon revenue for wind farm developers. The programme seeks to develop a series of grid connected wind power projects that supply clean electricity to either the national grid of the RSA or an identified consumer via RSA’s grid. Activities included into this programme envisage the installation and operation of a wind farm on a site where no wind farm has been operated prior to the implementation of the activity (Greenfield installation) as well as the capacity addition to an existing wind farm.

    Participation in this programme will enable the wind farm developers to increase the economic viability of wind farm construction projects due to the revenue from selling CERs.

    Starting date of the programme is 08/02/2013.

    Length of the programme is 28 years.

    South African Large Scale Grid Connected Solar Park Programme

    Sector: Renewable energy
    Project type: Solar energy

    The main objective of the South African Large Scale Grid Connected Solar Park Programme is to contribute to the development and promotion of renewable energy in South Africa by building a framework to secure carbon revenue for solar park developers. The programme seeks to develop a series of grid connected solar power projects that supply clean electricity to either the national grid of South Africa or an identified consumer via South African grid. CDM programme activities (CPAs) included into this programme envisage the installation and operation of a solar park on a site where no solar park has been operated prior to the implementation of the CPA (Greenfield installation) as well as the capacity addition to an existing solar park. Each CPA will implement either Photovoltaics (PV) technology or Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology.

    Participation in this programme will enable the solar park developers to increase the economic viability of solar park construction projects due to the revenue from selling CERs.

    Starting date of the programme is 01/03/2013.

    Length of the programme is 28 years.

  • Small Scale Solar Electrical Programme

    Small-scale solar electrical programme, South Africa

    Sector: Renewable energy
    Project type:  Solar energy

    The objective of this Clean Development Mechanism programme is to boost the use of solar electrical systems by domestic consumers and private companies of South Africa. Electricity which will be produced by the solar electrical systems installed can be supplied to either: Scenario (a) An identified consumer (end user) or the group of consumers, which would have been supplied with electricity from the national grid of South Africa in the absence of the system, furthermore excess electricity can be supplied to the grid; or Scenario (b) The national grid of South Africa.

    Participation in this programme will enable the solar electrical system owners to discount the purchased price of the solar electrical system or get an annual income in the form of rebate in exchange for cession of their rights to claim greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions to us. The solar park developers have an option to retain rights to dispose issued credits.

    Starting date of the programme is 01/01/2013.

    Length of the programme is 28 years.

    Unique programme which at the same time supports both small-scale solar systems that supply power to South African grid (CDM methodology AMS-I.D) and the systems that supply power straight to the end-user (CDM methodology AMS-I.F)

  • Neusberg

    Neusberg Grid Connected Hydroelectric Power Plant, South Africa

    Sector: Renewable energy
    Project type:  Hydropower

    Client: Kakamas Hydro Electric Power

    The project envisages the construction and operation of a run-of-river hydroelectric power plant with an installed capacity of 12.57 MW. The power plant will be limited at a net output of 10 MW (at the metering point) due to governmental constrains on the capacity for small hydroelectric power plants. The power plant will comprise of 3 turbines and the associated infrastructure. The produced electricity will be supplied to the national grid of the RSA and sold to Eskom via a Power Purchase Agreement under “Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (IPPPP)”. The reduction of GHG emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.

    The first crediting period of the project is 08/10/2014 – 07/10/2021.

    Total estimated GHG emission reduction over the first 7-year crediting period is 467 782 tCO2e.

    Prieska Grid Connected 20 MW Solar Park, South Africa

    Sector: Renewable energy
    Project type:  Solar energy

    Client: Mulilo Renewable energy

    The project envisages the construction and operation of a solar park with the installed capacity of 20.65 MWp. The solar park will be equipped with several arrays of photovoltaic (PV) panels. Produced electricity will be supplied to the Eskom electricity network. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from electricity generation for the solar park amount to zero. The reduction of GHG emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.
