SAPVIA meeting with the Dti: 15 February 2012

On the 15th of February 2012 SAPVIA held a meeting with Ntombifuthi Ntuli, the Director of Renewable Energy at the Dti, regarding the local content requirements for the IPP programme in order to identify potential opportunities and problem areas, as well as a possible joint approach to local content increases. The main outcomes of the meeting were that the Dti offered to assist SAPVIA with a research study focused on the Localisation Potential of South Africa’s PV industry by providing input on the Terms of Reference, and by providing financial assistance. It was also agreed that a more detailed definition of ‘Local Content’ was required and SAPVIA would assist the Dti in tightening the definition by providing a list of issues the industry was experiencing with the current definition.The agenda for the meeting and Ntombi’s presentation are available for download below.
