International experiences with tender procedures show low rates of on-schedule completion

Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS)

Potsdam-based Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) has published a comparative study on renewable energies tender procedures in Brazil, France, Italy and South Africa. Findings show that auction prices in most countries continuously fell from one round to the next, and rates of on-schedule completion are well below 100 percent, ranging between 14 percent in Brazil and 41 percent in South Africa (wind).
