Season's Greetings from the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC).


The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is severely suffering from low electricity access rates, where on the other hand highly inefficient and sometimes substandard high energy consuming appliances are used in households and businesses. Impacts on climate change continue to adversely affect the regions’ electricity generation. The region decided to take a step by introducing harmonised Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for lighting and appliances to prevent low quality products from entering the markets or being produced in the regions.

In most developing regions, small hydro-power plays an important role in national renewable energy and climate mitigation scenarios. Small-hydro power can supply urban grids, industrial facilities or rural economic zones with competitive electricity services. However, despite of being a mature technology, particularly in least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS), the small hydro potentials remain unexploited due to manifold key barriers and constraints.
