South African Energy Minister Jeff Radebe will on Tuesday sign off 27 renewable energy independent power producer (IPP) projects, some of which are biogas developments, according to Business Report.

The process has been delayed since 2015 by state-owned utility Eskom’s refusal to sign power-purchase agreements.

The Department of Energy also announced it is bringing forward discussions on the country’s stalled gas IPP projects, according to various reports, but it has not provided further details.
