South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers’ Procurement Programme (REIPPPP), demonstrates the country’s commitment to a more sustainable future growth path. The State’s support of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures simultaneously aims to encourage skills development and stimulate job creation.
