The Municipal Energy Resilience (MER) Project was launched to assist municipalities to take advantage of new energy regulations, which may include purchasing of energy directly from IPPs.

MER Project will help municipalities across the Western Cape to understand the requirements of the new national energy regulations and mitigate related risks as well as provide for network and operational capacity requirements for energy project development and procurement in municipalities.  During this session we will talk about the phases of the MER project and get an update on progress to date. 

We also consider support that is being offered to municipalities in other regions across South Africa, and what lessons can be learned from the work that has already been done.
