The Mandate of the Generation Procurement Entity (GPE)

Developing And Implementing The Processes For The Procurement Of New Generating Capacity

The Generation Procurement Entity (GPE) was re-established January 2020 by way of Cabinet Decision for the purpose of processing new generating capacity.

The Entity was created to manage and administer the process for the procurement, by means of competitive bidding, of generation capacity by potential Independent Power Producers (IPPs) for sale of electricity to the Single Buyer. Such IPPs may be local and/or international which the GPE would be required to engage in an open and transparent manner.

The GPE is responsible to lead and manage the implementation and replacement of baseload generation in keeping with the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) which projects a twenty-year electricity generation for the country.
