IPP 3 delayed until mid-August says DOE

More time needed before next IPP window……..

Announced by the department of energy (DOE) during December, potential IPP power producers now have until 19 August 2013 to submit their bids, thus meaning that the submission date for the third bidding window for independent power producers (IPP) has been postponed again.

As part of the renewable energy IPP procurement programme, which was introduced in August 2011, the submission date had originally been set for 7 May 2013 but DOE says that more time is needed to incorporate lessons learnt from the previous IPP windows.

In addition, DOE says it needs to update requests for proposals according to new matters coming to light

More power from renewables

By giving more time to bidders to consider updated request for proposals, this affords the IPP team, says DOE, more time to consider the preferred bidder process, DOE stating that the country’s overall energy needs programme will require an additional 3200 MW of renewable energy from the three phases or windows of IPP bidding.

IPP targets in technical terms for onshore wind, both types of solar energy, biomass, bio-gas, small hydro and generalise small energy projects are all included in the DOE statement.

Amendments to regulations regarding petroleum products wholesale licences and petroleum products manufacturing licences were also published by DOE in December late.
