Investing in the South African power sector infrastructure programme provides institutional investors the opportunity to secure an inflation linked, long-term,self-liquidating investment in renewable energy infrastructure. This ability to invest in renewable energy is not readily available in the market.

South African Power Sector

The power sector infrastructure funding programme will require a total of R600 bn ($42 bn) in equity and debt capital by 2030.

The R450 bn ($32bn) of the capital requirement will be in the form of long-term, non-recourse senior debt.

Currently, there is very limited opportunity for institutional investors to invest in project equity – mainly in BEE funds. This creates a significant opportunity to secure an inflation-linked, long-term, self-liquidating investment. Private debt investing brings about investment diversification to an investor’s overall portfolio which aims to enhance investor returns.

Secure the opportunity of an inflation-linked, long-term, self-liquidating investment.
