Tentrans Workshop

Time: 09h00 – 11h00
Cost: Complimentary to Windaba delegates and visitors
Venue: Orchid, CTICC 2

This research project on Tendering Sustainable energy Transition also known as TENTRANS examines how South Africa’s REIPPP programme is designed and how it interacts with national industrial development and local economic development.

The largest and first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa, REIPPPP offers valuable academic and policy-relevant insights for other countries across the continent and globally that are in the process of designing and adopting similar RE tendering schemes.

The Tentrans Workshop will provide discussions based on three work packages, which will each present their emerging research findings. This platform also aims to provide for an opportunity to interrogate the research and make suggestions for how to guide it going forward.

The South African Wind Energy Association and its counterpart the Danish Wind Industry Association (DWIA) are industry partners to the project. Other collaborators include the Denmark-based UNEP DTU Partnership, the Danish Technical University (DTU) Wind, the Danish Institute for International Studies, University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University.

This merger presents a unique opportunity for the two key sectors of Mining and Renewable Energy to work collaboratively in achieving a strengthened domestic economy.

Windaba Conference and exhibition, ‘Africa’s premier wind Energy platform’ will this year host a Side-Event entitled: Renewable energy’s contribution to South Africa’s Mining Sector.

The session that will be held on Wednesday ,9 October at the CTICC2 and will set out how South Africa can successfully deploy renewable energy to support the mineral resources sector, encourage investment and bolster job creation.
