The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) is cooperating with the Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa (RERA), the Southern African Power Pool Coordination Centre (SAPP CC) and the University of California Santa Barbara in implementing a research project “Accelerating large-scale renewable energy deployment in Southern Africa by bridging analysis and application through decision support tools”, shortened “RE 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.

PROJECT CONTEXT
