Bankability of clean energy projects - South Africa case

This session is part of the Clean Energy Regulators Initiative Webinar Programme.

Theme 3 - Finance

Module 4: Bankability

South Africa launched its Renewable Energy program in 2010. Since then, SA has had four extremely successful rounds of bidding, with over 6,000MWs allocated across wind, solar PV, CSP, landfill gas, biomass and small hydro projects. R193 billion (USD15.5 bn) of FDI has been injected into the economy through this new asset class. The program has been highly commended with applause from local & international developers and the financing fraternity alike.

South African banks have been at the forefront of the financing for these renewables projects, which are funded in Rands with a Rand PPA, backstopped by the SA Government.

  7. 7. REIPPP Overview General REIPPP RequirementsREIPPP Overview IPP PPA National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) Eskom (State Owned Utility) South Africa Department of Energy (DoE)Implementation Agreement Generation Licence Connection Agreement REIPPP Programme  The South African government’s Integrated Resource Plan (“IRP”) sets an ambitious target to add 50,000 MW of new generation capacity to the South African grid by 2028 with renewable energy technologies accounting for approximately 42 per cent of this target  It is against this background that the South African government, through the Department of Energy (“DoE”), launched the Renewable Energy IPP Procurement Programme in August 2011  Under the programme, the DoE initially mandated the procurement of up to 3,625 MW from IPPs of various renewable energy technologies including : wind, solar photovoltaic, concentrated solar power, biogas, biomass, small hydro and landfill gas. An additional 3,100 MW was subsequently made available for procurement under the REIPP Procurement Programme REIPPP Tender Design  Under the REIPP programme, bids are invited from developers in sequential bidding rounds, or “windows”. To date, there have been four bidding windows, with the fifth expected to take place in early 2016. Potential bidders are required to register basic details of their proposed project(s) approximately two months ahead of the relevant bid window and unsuccessful projects can be bid again in future windows  In each bid window, a maximum number of megawatts is made available for each applicable technology and a price cap is set (although the DoE has now removed the price cap for all the technologies, having concluded that intense competition has driven down prices and rendered a cap redundant) Project Structure  This requires a bidder to provide, among other things, a structural diagram showing its debt and equity participants, contractors and key equipment suppliers Legal Requirements  This requires a bidder to indicate, among other things, its acceptance of the terms of the PPA, IA and the other designated project agreements Land Requirements  This requires a bidder to show, among other things, that it has secured the project site, identified all permits and licences required for the project with respect to land rezoning, subdivision and water use Environmental Requirements  A bidder must provide, among other things, the environmental authorisation and related documents Financial Requirements  This requires a bidder to specify, among other things, its price, identify its method of financing the project and demonstrate that it has made sufficient progress in securing financing for its project and the necessary proof of its ability to raise such financing Technical Requirements  A bidder is required to provide, among other things, information on the technology to be used, resource data, contractor capability and track record and a cost estimate letter for grid connection Economic Development  A bidder must make binding commitments (during both construction and operations phase) with respect to share ownership by black South Africans and local communities, local content, job creation, preferential procurement, management control, socio-economic development and enterprise development Value for Money  Each project must provide net benefit to the South African government and consumer taking into account, without limitation, the price offered, the bidder’s internal rate of return and level of success payments  The bid documents contain detailed and complex requirements. Bid responses must comply with all of the qualification criteria to be compliant  The qualification criteria requires bidders to provide detailed responses as to the extent of their readiness to deliver their projects in key areas such as project structure, compliance with specific legal, land, environmental, financial, technical and economic development requirements. Detail on each of these requirements is shown below:  The commercial structure of the REIPPP is shown below: 4

  9. 9. REIPPP Overview (Cont) REIPPP Programme to Date REIPPP Competitiveness & Trends(1) Socio Economic Features of REIPPP South African Participation  A bidder must ensure that at least 40 per cent of the beneficial shareholding in the project company is directly or indirectly held by South African citizens Job Creation  Each bidder must make commitments to ensure that a certain percentage of its employees during the construction and operation phase are South African citizens of which a certain percentage must be black South Africans Local Content  This is intended to measure the construction expenditure of a project and to express the South African products and services component as a percentage of the total project cost  Local content minimum threshold requirements have increased and require a minimum SA entity participation of 40%, a BEE contributor status level of 5, indicating the extent of the South African entity participation Local Community Ownership  This requires a bidder to ensure that the project company allocates a certain percentage of its ultimate beneficial shareholding to local communities this requires a bidder to ensure that the project company allocates a certain percentage of its ultimate beneficial shareholding to local communities Socio Economic Development  This requires a bidder to identify socio-economic needs of the surrounding communities where the project site will be located and formulate strategies on how such needs could be met utilising the socio-economic development financial contributions Management Control  Commitments that a certain percentage of the project company’s management will comprise black South Africans Enterprise Development  Commitments to initiatives that will enhance the capacity of emerging businesses owned/controlled by black South Africans Preferential Procurement  Commitments to procure goods and services from businesses owned or controlled by black South Africans  The REIPPP programme has generated 92 new renewable energy IPPs across the four bidding rounds to date  R193 billion in investment has been committed for the construction of over 6,200 MW of capacity in technologies like onshore wind, solar PV and concentrated solar power  The DOE issued a media statement in April 2015 stating the intention to launch an expedited procurement process of 1800MW from all renewable technologies.

  10. 10. REIPPP Overview (Cont)  One qualification criteria which has become a key part of the programme is the engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) arrangements. A bidder has to provide details of its EPC contractor, including its track record and capability in building the power plant  Although this is not a specific bid compliance requirement, a competitive EPC price is essential for a successful project and a balance needs to be struck between risk transfer to the EPC contractor and price. Lenders will want the project company to be insulated from risk, yet a blanket approach will not be accepted in the market. With experienced and well resourced sponsors in place, there is scope for the project company to take on appropriate risks – but this is all in the context of fixed “upstream” project documents (the PPA and IA) that govern the process and place fixed obligations and timings on the project company.  These documents (and their impact on the EPC and operations and maintenance arrangements) need to be understood, as they establish a framework for the construction and operation of the projects.  The correct flow-through of processes (in particular during commissioning and commercial operation) and project relief (whereby the EPC contractor’s relief under the EPC contract is limited to that which the project company obtains under the project documents) are essential and must be considered pragmatically and commercially.  Other key issues that need to be addressed include:  dealing with delays caused by Eskom (in particular in relation to grid connection);  site risk under the PPA;  site access;  payment structures and security;  how issues particular to the local construction market can impact on construction and operation;  exchange rate risk;  economic development obligations; and  access to the transmission or distribution system.  With continued pressure on tariff pricing there may be a move towards split contract structures (where the project company employs an equipment supplier and a separate balance of plant contractor – and manages the interface between the two). The Role of EPC & Bidding Considerations Challenges and Lessons Learned Simplified Bidding Requireme nts  The cost of bidding has been high due to the detailed and complex nature of the bidding requirements. The DoE has sought to simplify bidding requirements (and therefore lower bidding costs) by making the following changes to the bid documents for the remaining bidding rounds:  Bidders no longer need to submit shareholders’ agreements in respect of the project company or heads of terms with their contractors and key equipment suppliers at the time of submission. This eliminates advisory and other associated costs incurred through negotiating these documents at the bid stage;  Certain licences and consents are not required until the preferred bidder stage;  The terms on which lenders can issue a letter of support to provide debt financing have been relaxed; and  Bidders only need to provide two hard copies and a soft copy of the bid response as opposed to seven hard copies and seven soft copies as was the case in previous bid windows. Licenses and Consents  Currently, the requisite licences and consents are obtained under different pieces of legislation and from different government departments with different timings and procedures. A single umbrella legal framework for renewable energy procurement with a “one-stop shop” government department for licenses and consents would make the bidding process more efficient and this would also help reduce the costs associated with liaising with different departments Project Site  Securing the project site is a key component of the bidding process. It is therefore important for a bidder to identify the project site and conclude the necessary contracts in sufficient time to ensure that the land arrangements meet land use and acquisition criteria. It is also important for bidders to resolve any land tenure issues such as any third party rights, existing mortgages Grid Connection  Due to financial constraints, there have been concerns regarding Eskom’s ability to build the network infrastructure necessary to connect the large number of successful projects to enable them to achieve commercial operations within the time frames specified in the PPAs. In addition, grid connection costs have now become an issue as the initial cost estimate letters provided by Eskom at bid submission vary substantially from subsequent budget quotes provided to preferred bidders. This has caused a delay in successful third bid window projects reaching financial close 7
  11. 11. REIPPPP: Expedited Bid Submission Window The Minister of Energy announced that the Department of Energy would be issuing Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for an expedited renewable energy IPP procurement process, for which 1,800 MW would be allocated MW Allocation and New Price Caps Key Dates Overview 650 520 450 100 40 25 15 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 Onshore wind Solar PV CSP Biomass Small hydro Biogas Landfill gas R760/ MWh R870/ MWh 1,370/ MWh 1475/ MWh 1117/ MWh 1475/ MWh 990/ MWh  The Expedited Bid Submission Window (“EW”) was released June 2015 by the Department of Energy (“DoE”)  The EW is open to all projects that are ready for submission within the required timelines, and not only to projects which were unsuccessful in previous bid submission phases  The Minister has allocated 1,800 MW to be allocated during the EW. However, the Department is not obliged to allocate all 1,800 MW during the EW  It is also anticipated that the Minister will issue a Third Determination that will provide for the procurement of a further 6,300 MW to be generated from renewable energy sources  The EW RFP is one of the various procurement processes that the Government will develop to procure this further generation capacity from renewable energy sources  Interested parties have until 6 October to respond to the RFP, the DoE has advised bidders to apply for cost estimate letters from the relevant grid provider as soon as possible The Price caps per Technology have been updated. Notably the Department has elected once more to impose a Price cap on Onshore Wind and Solar PV technologies. Previously, the Price cap was removed for these Technologies 3 Jul ‘15 8 Sept ‘15 8 Oct ‘15 Release of the EW RFP volumes Expedited bid submission date Signing of PPA, IA, DA, Connection Agreements and Financial Close 11 Dec ‘15 31 Jul ‘16 31 Dec ‘19 Bid registration date Announcement of preferred bidders COD proposed by a bidder to fall before D3c 2019 ___________________________ Source: IPPRenewables MW 8
