The Republic of South Africa is the most developed economy in sub-Saharan Africa, yet it is facing strong headwinds from slowing growth. Frequent electricity shortages complicate the challenge for the economy from the supply side. According to the country’s National Treasury, GDP growth will increase by roughly 2% if the issue of electricity shortage is addressed. Securing energy supply and developing renewable energy are therefore the government’s main policy concerns. Coupled with electricity shortage, grid facilities are getting outdated. In this context, the New Development Bank’s (NDB) Project Finance Facility (PFF) is proposed to support the development of grid connection infrastructure, which is vital for the development of renewable energy projects.
