However, the renewable energy market in South Africa is expected to grow exponentially in the next few years, owing to the announcement of the renewable energy feed-in tariff made in March 2009.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (energy.frost.com), Southern African Renewable Energy Equipment Market, finds that the industry earned revenues of $28.4 million in 2008 and estimates this to increase nearly tenfold by 2015, to reach $262.3 million. This will include projects to develop energy from solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, wind power and biomass sources.

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides a brief synopsis of the research and a table of contents, then send an email to Patrick Cairns, Corporate Communications, at patrick.cairns[.]frost.com, with your full name, company name, title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, a brief brochure will be sent to you by email.

"The growth of the wind power market and large-scale solar concentrating projects will be driven by an increasing number of joint ventures," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sipha Ndawonde. "Such ventures will be between project developers with local knowledge and private equity investment firms, backed by the support of international original equipment manufacturers."

With tightening sources of global credit and more countries reporting negative economic growth rates, private equity investment companies have become more selective and strategic about the sectors into which they invest. Sustainable energy project portfolios have however bulged to more than $1 billion, dedicated to financing RE projects in Southern Africa.

"This is an indication that investors view RE and energy efficiency projects in Southern Africa as having favourable returns and representing a solid investment decision," Ndawande says. "An abundance of natural resources combined with a stable political environment, reasonable economic growth rates and growing interest from private equity firms means that large-scale RE projects are set to penetrate into the Southern African countries of South Africa, Botswana and Namibia."
