  2. 2. SOUTH AFRICAN CSP MARKET POTENTIAL 2014: a landmark year for the CSP industry in South Africa? The potential for CSP power plants in South Africa is huge. The country has excellent solar resources which can reach over 2800 kWh/ m2/annum, combined with the most recent commitment shown by the government towards concentrated solar power. Together with the strong manufacturing industry and land availability, South Africa is ranked number one in the CSP Today 2014 Markets Scorecard. South Africa has three CSP projects under construction (totalling 200 MW) and two under development (200 MW). Storage capacities built so far range from 2 hours (Khi) and 3 hours (KaXu) to 9 hours (Bokpoort). With a better solar resource than Europe and industries where CSP applications can be developed like mining, desalination and process heat, CSP is ready to boom. In relation to the electric grid, CSP with storage matches perfectly the demand curve. For a country with high dependency on fossil fuels, a technology that can meet peak times, can stabilise the grid and is clean, is priceless. When cost price concerns arise, it’s also important to consider the large hybridization potential of CSP as it has been proved to operate with Biomass and combined cycle gas applications. The new Time Of Day tariff incentive is exactly what the CSP projects in South Africa need in order to demonstrate the real value of the electricity that CSP can generate Wikus van Niekerk, Director of the CRSES, Stellenbosch University “ ” Uncertainty regarding future MW allocations For a technology to develop, it needs time, but also investment and support from government bodies. Changes in the bidding structure of the REIPPPP attempt to favour CSP with storage. CSP is seen as cost-competitive with current peaking power stations, but the South African authorities have to raise the amount of MW awarded per round. Currently, South Africa has a target of deploying 1,200 MW of CSP by 2030. So, one of the biggest barriers for CSP development in the country is the uncertainty regarding future MW allocations. CSP is heavy in manufacturing and job creation and with South Africa’s unemployment around 25%, it’s the perfect industry to develop qualified local content. But in order for this to happen, companies and investors’ expectations about the future development of the market, the size of the market and its stability have to be clear. In terms of local content, the most important barriers to enter the market as determined from stakeholders are the following: • Uncertainty of MW capacity allocated to CSP • Market size for CSP is too small • Inability to compete with experienced international manufacturers • Raw material costs are too high Financing structures and bankability of projects are hugely important and have significant impact on price levels, which means that projects with the best locations might be outranked by projects with a better financing structure, but a lower energy-generation potential. Bright Future While the challenges are multiple for CSP in South Africa, the industry is poised to become a main contender in the energy mix through internationalization, effective innovation and cost reduction; and CSP Today South Africa 2014 is here to help! There is no doubt that CSP can and will play a vital role in supporting the reduction of coal consumption in SA through the use of steam augmentation or solar boosting Kadri Nassiep, CEO, SANEDI “ ” CSP Today South Africa 2014 is the only conference in South Africa 100% dedicated to concentrated solar power. Below you will find a breakdown of the lessons you will take back to the office after the event: CSP CHALLENGE WHO?
