Economic prosperity for marginalised communities through renewable energy in South Africa

South Africa’s renewable energy (RE) procurement policy is unique globally in its emphasis on providing benefits for communities in the vicinity of projects
participating in the RE Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). RE projects are primarily located in rural communities, frequently
categorised as “marginalised communities”. The REIPPPP has created a legal framework to incentivise IPPs to channel benefits to communities near RE

This study assesses the SED and ED impacts of renewable energy deployment in marginalised communities in South Africa
