Wind-energy site developer Windlab – which is participating in two projects that have already progressed to the preferred-bidder stage under South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP) – reports that it is pursuing a further 14 near-term South African prospects that could collectively represent more than 2 000 MW of future capacity.

The delay of the government's bid program for green power by seven months could mean that small developers decide to give up. On the other hand, it is a positive step to good corporate control.

So says Peter Venn, regional director of Windlab.

Windlab is a partner in the development of a wind farm of 140 MW near Bedford and Cookhouse in the Eastern Cape and is also involved at Moyeng Energy's 94.5 MW wind farm near Vredenburg on the West Coast. Both projects were appointed as preferred bidders in the second round.

South Australia’s blustery conditions this week had one positive: wind power provided more than half of the state’s power on Wednesday, according to the Clean Energy Council.

Clean Energy Council Policy Director Russell Marsh said data from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) showed that 55 per cent of all the electricity used by South Australians yesterday was generated by the state’s wind farms, which were spinning flat out all day long.
