Renewable Energy Decision Support (REDS) Tools project

Accelerate Large-Scale Renewable Energy Deployment in Southern Africa by Bridging Analysis and Application Through Decision Support Tools.

The SADC Center for  Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) in collaboration with the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), Regional Energy Regulators Association of Southern Africa (RERA) and the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) is undertaking a project to “Accelerate Large-Scale Renewable Energy Deployment in Southern Africa by Bridging Analysis and Application Through Decision Support Tools.” The Project is funded by the Applied Research Programme on Energy for Economic Growth (EEG), led by Oxford Policy Management. EEG is funded by the UK Government, through UK Aid.

The Renewable Energy Decision Support (REDS) Tools project aims to identify renewable energy resources and grid integration strategies that are specific to the challenges, needs, and opportunities in Southern African countries, specifically 12 mainland SADC Member States that are members of SAPP. By doing so, the project seeks to extend existing studies in a way that is directly relevant for near-term decision-making while considering long-term development ambitions. The deliverable is a SAPP applicable electricity planning and operation model on an open-source platform that, Ministries of Energy, Regulators, Utilities and any other entities can use.
