Title: The Challenges for Renewable Energy Businesses in SA Glynn Morris AGAMA Energy


1
The Challenges for Renewable Energy Businesses in
SAGlynn Morris - AGAMA Energy
  • Status of RE sector in SA
  • Nature of RE in SA
  • The players
  • The blockers
  • Other examples of growing RE sectors
  • EU Synergy Programme Recommendations for Action
  • The solutions

2
The Status of the Renewable Energy Sector in SA
  • The RE sector in SA is a CINDERELLA industry
  • It is a REAL business sector in the SA economy -
    but very small at present, say approx. R100
    million per annum
  • It is probably stagnant or shrinking in real
    terms (no reliable stats - hard to tell)
  • The potential for excellent economic growth is
    twofold
  • sectoral growth of the industry itself
  • added value to other sectors
  • Environmental considerations - mostly very
    positive

3
The nature of the RE sector
  • Research and development
  • Manufacture
  • Installation contracting
  • Maintenance contracting
  • Consulting
  • Education and training
  • Service provision

4
The players
  • Government
  • National - DME DEAT DTI Finance
  • Provincial
  • Local
  • Eskom - Eskom Eskom Enterprises Shell/Eskom JV
  • Multinational divisions/agents - Siemens, Shell
    Renewables, EDF, etc.
  • Small SA firms - approx. 50 in total
  • NGOs - SESSA, SAWEA, Earthlife Africa, WWF-SA,
    etc.
  • Financiers - local and international

5
The blockers
  • No public support to the White Paper commitments
    to RE
  • Insufficient long-term planning and programme
    commitments
  • Ongoing hidden subsidies to existing players
    e.g. Eskom liquid fuel sector nuclear sector
    local authorities
  • Insufficient turnover and margins in RE sector
    for sustained growth
  • Poor sectoral co-ordination and development

6
Other examples of growing RE sectors
  • Developed countries
  • Europe
  • USA
  • Japan
  • Developing countries - Southern Africa
  • Namibia
  • Botswana

7
EU Synergy Programme Recommendations for Action -
ECN, CSIR, RISO, RMA
  • Bulk Renewable Energy
  • Develop a 200MW per annum set-aside programme
  • Develop and implement power purchase regulation
  • Implement capacity building
  • Off-grid Renewable Energy
  • Send out a consistent message from Government
  • Raise awareness of rural energy options and
    realities
  • Make electrification planning more transparent
  • Implement energy planning within Integrated
    Development Planning Process
  • Provide capacity building

8
EU Synergy Programme Recommendations for Action -
contd
  • Demonstration and Commercial Projects
  • provide financial support
  • Provide capacity building
  • Provide technology

9
The Solutions?
  • A government commitment to procure RE services
    over next decade
  • Opening up of the energy markets based on
    criteria of sustainability and transparency
  • Implementation of specific programmes
  • RE IPP set-aside programme
  • SWH programme
  • thermal efficiency in housing - energy footprint
    for buildings
  • Government commitment to long-term public
    awareness programme - like Bonesa energy
    efficiency programme
  • Capacity building in all aspects of RE
