!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.

Risk profile of IDC’s book

IDC initiatives

A key focus area of the Corporation’s Leadership in Industrial Development Strategy, adopted in 2012, is to put plans in place to ensure the balance sheet remains robust and can deliver the levels of funding required to make a meaningful impact in the industries the IDC is targeting over the next five years.

Initiatives adopted to ensure long-term financial sustainability within an acceptable risk profile include:
  • Stratify investments to take cognisance of different risk profiles and ensure that the returns of these investments are in line with the risks taken;
  • Structure investments to increase direct equity returns;
  • Reduce impairments and keep within risk appetite levels;
  • Ensure that interest and fees generated from IDC’s loan portfolio are appropriate and the level of cross- subsidisation is reduced;
  • Increase its sourcing of lower cost funding; and
  • Improve management of the portfolio.

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.
