SAPVIA: SA Renewable Energy Grid survey

Dear SAPVIA members,

We are excited to launch the 2023 South African Renewable Energy Grid Survey in conjunction with ESKOM.

The annual survey provides the renewable energy industry with an invaluable opportunity to inform and influence grid expansion and planning that will benefit both REIPPPP and Private investment in new generation capacity.

The survey submissions will provide for better insights to enhance future Grid Capacity Connection Assessment (GCCA) updates and submitted data will be consolidated, aggregated, and summarised, providing Eskom with valuable insights for grid access demand and inform grid strengthening and expansion planning.

The 2023 version of the survey has been updated to account for projects that employ wheeling and has been expanded to capture even more detail per project to aid Eskom in their overall grid planning.

To this end, we request that all SAPVIA/SAWEA members use the survey to submit projects by the close of business Friday, 31 March 2023.

All information submitted in the survey will go directly to Eskom hence neither SAWEA, SAPVIA nor their members will have access to this data.

For any queries regarding the survey please send an email to  with the subject line “SA Renewable Energy Grid Survey: Query”.

We would like to thank the ESKOM strategic grid planning team for their valuable insight and cooperation in the design and set up of the survey.

Finally, we would like to personally thank the chairperson of the SAPVIA grid access working group, Mr Zayd Vawda, of WSP, a leading multinational engineering and professional services consulting firm, and proud SAPVIA member, for leading the development and strategic guidance of the survey.
