Policy Advisory

Policy and regulatory frameworks are increasingly transcending borders hence SACREEE is promoting the regional approach in renewable energy and energy efficiency policies and strategies. The overall approach is to develop a harmonized policy, regulatory, and institutional framework conducive to broader and accelerated uptake of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and practices in the region and assist countries to develop national policies, strategies and regulations and action plans to promote the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and energy services. Gender Mainstreaming in Energy Policies and programmes is also in the focus.

SACREEE is implementing the strategies and actions outlined in the SADC Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Strategy and Action Plan (REEESAP) which include:

  1. Supporting the creation of policies, strategies, plans and other frameworks to ensure an enabling environment for RE/EE investments;
  2. Building capacity to design, develop, build, implement and maintain RE/EE projects;
  3. Supporting the development of projects and technologies and transfer know how to meet demand targets.
