Participants in the renewable energy <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/renewable-energy> sector say they are encouraged by the dedicated infrastructure <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/infrastructure> team that will be set up in the Presidency, as it will give investors more certainty and confidence to back projects <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/projects>.
“We’ve seen what the last two years of delays in the signing of renewable projects <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/projects> did to us. I think the politicians have realised too. You need an infrastructure <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/infrastructure> unit that takes ideas, conceptualises them, puts them out to market and makes sure they happen,” Department of Energy <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/energy> Independent Power <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/power> Producer (IPP) Office CEO *Karen Breytenbach <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/karen-breytenbach> *said on Thursday.

She told delegates attending the Sub Saharan Africa <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/africa-company> Power <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/power>2018 conference, in Cape Town <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/cape-town>, that she was very pleased that the unit would be set up as it was vital to retain investors.
She said the renewable energy <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/renewable-energy> sector was recovering well after a rocky two years, in which the signing of renewable energy <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/renewable-energy> contracts was delayed under former President *Jacob Zuma <www.engineeringnews.co.za/topic/jacob-zuma>*.
