The Integrated Resource Plan (IRP 2019) and associated Ministerial Determinations guide the roll out of procurement under the Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (IPPPP).
Following NERSA concurrence, the Ministerial Determination for 2 000 MW capacity, to be procured and installed between 2019 and 2022, was gazetted on 7 July 2020.

The conference will allow all stakeholders to engage with members of the DMRE and IPP Office on queries or clarification questions in relation to the released RFP.
