SACREEE Energy Efficiency Program

As part of the implementation of the REEESAP, SACREEE is strongly focusing on the development and implementation of a holistic regional energy efficiency program. The following Demand Side Management measures and Energy Efficiency Options in SADC have been identified and highlighted as critical:

SADC Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (SIEEP)

SACREEE, with the support of the European Union Technical Assistance Facility (EU-TAF), is designing and developing a regional SADC Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (SIEEP), which is meant to support the implementation of the SADC Industrialization Strategy and Roadmap, 2015-2063.  SIEEP will contribute to the competitiveness of the industrial sectors of SADC Member States by building their capacity to adopt, invest and utilise energy efficient technologies and practices.  The target group are medium and large scale industries.
