GreenCo SAPP trading and regional roll out plus see you at GEAS next week!

GreenCo is delighted to have commenced active energy trading operations in southern Africa on the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP). This follows GreenCo’s admission as the first Market Participant member of the SAPP. GreenCo has traded in excess of 2,000MWh of energy on SAPP’s competitive markets since August 2022 and is actively expanding its operations in several countries in the SADC region. GreenCo is deploying innovative and context-sensitive trading solutions to clients and IPPs across the region while supporting the addition of renewable energy capacity and increasing regional trade. For our recent regional IPP call for proposals please see Procurement Portal

For our recent analysis on the impact of Africa GreenCo on Sovereign Guarantees in the Southern African Power Pool region please see PDF. We would encourage anyone interested in this topic to contact us as there is no more fiscal space for new traditional sovereign-backed IPP development in the region!

To meet us in person, please join us at the Green Energy Africa Summit (GEAS) next week in Cape Town. GreenCo has been invited to participate and speak at this year’s event to highlight how it can help unlock the potential of the private sector to play a significant role in delivering renewable energy capacity. We are excited to showcase our recent progress in the region especially.

Aiming to share and cross pollinate our vision and ideas of models for sustainably delivering energy to African markets, Africa GreenCo CEO – Ana Hajduka, will on 4th October 2022 speak under the sub-theme “Creating Scale and Regional Marketing, How Can Power Pools and Cross Boarder Harmonization Support”. She will make the case for the leverage that power pools and regional integration present for scaling new market models. This approach can deliver multiple efficiencies in terms of capital investment infrastructure, optimisation of assets and maximisation of the integration of variable renewable generation into the regional grid.

Additionally, GreenCo’s Head of Business Development – Wezi Gondwe, will on the same day be on a panel of experts, regulators and industry leaders discussing “The Role of the Utility, the Challenges of Creditworthiness, Infrastructure and Capacity”.
