Calling all power producers

Calling all power producers

With power and energy production a top consideration for the future development of the African continent, independent power producers (IPPs) have become an important source of investment in a number of African countries.

However, power purchase agreements (PPAs) need to be crafted to balance the interests of the various parties so as not to be a source of risk to the stakeholders.

Given that PPAs are the foundation of the bankability of power projects, there are a number of issues that need to be taken into consideration; which is why the fifth Independent Power Producers and Power Purchase Agreements Conference will once again take place alongside the annual Africa Energy Indaba in Johannesburg on Thursday, February 22, 2018. 

The conference will be facilitated by a team of energy experts with extensive experience in advising IPPs in Africa.

These include legal experts specialising in assisting investors and energy stakeholders with their PPAs and other key contracts as they set up energy projects across the continent, ensuring that projects are bankable and that the legal agreements are sound.

At the conference these experts will be examining the requirements for successful IPPs and bankable PPAs, discussing current examples and giving insights into how to successfully negotiate PPAs.

Topics include:

  • The latest developments for IPPs in Africa;
  • The role of public-private partnerships in Africa’s energy sector; and
  • Project presentation of renewable energy projects.
