PNG Power’s Independent Power Producer and Major Infrastructure Policy (“IPP Policy”) clarifies the situations and manner in which private sector partners might participate in implementing PNG Power’s Least Cost Development Plan and other strategic and economic enhancing opportunities in the power sector.

The IPP Policy has an essential role in meeting PNG’s long-term objectives of making electricity reliable, safe and affordable to all Papua New Guineans. PNG Power insists that its partners comply with the IPP Policy; however, compliance alone is not sufficient to get PNG Power’s approval on any one project. For every project PNG Power will adhere to its normal Statutory Governance Approval Process.
