The SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) in collaboration with the European Union is organizing a Technical Stakeholders Workshop on the SADC Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (SIEEP). The workshop is taking place from 19-20 October 2017 in Maputo and is kindly hosted by the Government of Mozambique.


In order to contribute to the competitiveness of the industrial sector in the region and in line with the SADC Industrialization Strategy and Roadmap 2015 – 2063, SACREEE is launching a regional program on Industrial Energy Efficiency. With support of the EU Technical Assistance Facility for the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL TAF) initiative for East and Southern Africa, a team of experts is currently visiting Member States to conduct a scoping study in order to assess current practices and the potential of energy efficiency in the Industrial sector of SADC Member States.


On 27 April 2017 in Maseru – Lesotho, SACREEE and IRENA jointly organised the kick-off meeting for the SADC Renewable Energy Entrepreneurship Support Facility. The meeting was hosted by the Government of Lesotho and supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) office in Lesotho.
