!Khi Solar One

Once completed, this concentrated solar tower power station will be one of the largest in the world. One of the benefits of this project relative to most other renewable energy projects is its ability to store energy and to deliver electricity to the grid during peak times.

Introducing the IDC

Funding model

IDC provides funding utilising retained earnings and borrowings, which it is able to obtain based on the strength of its balance sheet.

Capital and interest repayments from loans provided to businesses are used to cover IDC’s obligations to its own lenders.

Dividend payments from equity investments provide an annuity income for IDC and exits from mature equity investments provide capital for new equity investments. IDC also manages funds on behalf of third parties such as the dti. These funds can be used to co-invest with IDC and provide IDC with a fee income.


Coega Dairy Holdings

The IDC has identified increased competition in the dairy value chain and import substitution in the cheese industry as key sector development goals. We also singled out the need for increased farmer (and specifically B-BBEE) participation in dairy value-adding initiatives.

Windtown Lagoon Resort 

The newly built Windtown Lagoon Resort and Spa reflects the IDC’s focus to funding community-based projects that have potential to create employment opportunities in far-flung regions.
