Upgrading the regulatory framework for wind energy, Western Cape Province, South Africa

Customer: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), Eschborn, Germany, 2009

The general objective of South Africa’s Technical Expertise for Renewable Energy Application (TERNA) program is to upgrade the regulatory framework conditions and techno-economic expertise for undertaking investments in renewable energies in Western Cape Province. The Consultant supports this by drawing up a Regional Regulatory Action Plan by pre-structuring this plan, holding consultations with participants and affected parties, and conducting in-depth studies on selected issues.

Sustainable Investments: Investments in CDM/JI projects with identification of target countries, Germany

Customer: Supply utility, 2009

In view of tightened up directives governing EU emissions trading, an international energy supply utility is planning to secure access to CO2 certificates by committing investments to CDM / JI projects. The Consultant is engaged to conduct a country-by-country analysis to identify countries and regions in which a portfolio of projects should be put together. For this purpose, both the technical and economic potentials of CDM/ JI projects are determined. National framework conditions on political, economic and investment aspects as well as regulations, guidelines and rulings for infeed to the grid from power generation facilities are checked.

Climate Change Mitigation: Grid-connected wind power program, Vietnam

Customer: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), Eschborn, Germany, 2009

The energy political and technical framework conditions for developing grid-connected wind power projects in Vietnam is to be upgraded, so that 500 MW wind power capacity can be installed by 2020. To this end, a Feed-In regulation comparable to the German Feed-In Law being drafted together with Vietnamese agencies and institutions, and in consultation with local stakeholders. Technical, economic, ecological and legal aspects are considered.

Consultancy on renewable energy, Germany

Customer: State Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research, Stuttgart, Germany 2008 - 2010
