PIETERS, I.J.; LOTZ, M.  and  BRENT, A.C.. Investigating the financial close of projects within the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.3, pp.57-68. ISSN 2224-7890.

South Africa may have a generation capacity shortage in the near future. The Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) is playing an important role in creating generation capacity to fulfil future demand requirements. This investigation focused primarily on identifying the problems that have been experienced with projects in the programme (e.g., to reach financial close). The research showed that there is good alignment between the requirements in the request for proposals and those from financiers. Several issues caused delays in projects reaching financial close. However, respondents to this study indicated that the REIPPPP is well thought out and that several problems are being addressed successfully.
