Draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) highlights large role of wind, gas, and solar PV by 2030

The Draft IRP published this week provides welcomed insight into South African government’s plans for new utility-scale energy projects to be built by 2030. While the draft clarifies the larger role solar PV, wind, and gas will likely play in the future energy mix (~67% by 2030), there are still a number of issues that need to be resolved and/or clarified before the plan can be finalized. In a recent webinar with ATA Insights, Chris Ahlfeldt unpacked some initial analysis of the draft IRP and highlighted future opportunities for the local solar industry.
