The BKCOB’s second Vice President, and Energy Committee chairperson, Dr Chris Ettmayr has recently contributed towards a study published in the South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences.
The study -Local Content Requirements and the Impact on the South African Renewable Energy Sector- by Ettmayr and Hendrik Lloyd, analyses the impact of local content requirements on the renewable energy sector and provides debate on the effectiveness of the policy with which they have to comply.
“The South African renewable energy sector has seen significant investment in the last few years with numerous solar and wind farms popping up all over the country. There are also bio-gas, landfill gas, hydro and even one or two geothermal projects that have been established. The projects that have formed part of the South African renewable energy procurement program named, REIPPPP, have all had to comply with local content requirements,” said Ettmayr.
Dr. Chris Ettmayr is an Economist by profession with a strong background in research and business development. His work history has varied between public and private institutions such as; the National Intelligence Agency, the East London Industrial Development Zone (ELIDZ) and Geonomics.
