Improvement of Livelihoods in SADC Members States through the adoption of Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE) for productive use

Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) is implementing the ‘Improvement of Livelihoods in SADC Member States through the Adoption of Distributed Renewable Energy for Productive Use’ project.  The project is being implemented as a pilot for 24 months and it covers Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Namibia and Zambia. It is being implemented under the Intra-African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) Programme through the Water-Energy-Food (WEF) nexus.

Regional Project on Cooling Products in the EAC and SADC region

The United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) United for Efficiency (U4E) initiative, the East African Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy and Efficiency (EACREEE) and SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) are working together to support the harmonization of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) on room air conditioners and residential refrigerators (cooling products) in the East African Community (EAC) and Southern African Development Community (SADC) regions. 
 
Project main components: 

Global Capacity Development Program in Renewable Energy

The SADC Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) provides technical expertise to the International Capacity Development Programme in Renewable Energy. The Programme aims at creating increased knowledge and capacity of selected organizations and participants about how different energy systems solutions based on renewable energy can be developed at different levels in society, from local communities without network connections to larger plants at the national macro level. The beneficiary SADC Member States are Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

SAPP Program for Accelerating Regional Energy/Transformational Projects (SAPP-AREP)

The SADC Center for  Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) is cooperating with the Southern African Power Pool Coordination Centre (SAPP CC) in implementing a portion of the SAPP Program for Accelerating Regional Energy/Transformational Projects (SAPP-AREP) that relates to SACREEE. SAPP-AREP is funded by the World Bank with resources provided by the International Development Association (IDA) and Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF).

Southern African Solar Thermal Training & Demonstration Initiative (SOLTRAIN)

The Southern African Solar Thermal Training & Demonstration Initiative (SOLTRAIN) is a regional initiative on capacity building & demonstration of solar thermal systems in the SADC region. SOLTRAIN is funded by Austrian Development Agency and co-financed by the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID).

H2 ATLAS-AFRICA: Atlas of Green Hydrogen Generation Potentials in Africa

The SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) and the Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL) are coordinating the H2 ATLAS-AFRICA project in the SADC region.

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.

SADC Renewable Energy Entrepreneurship Support Facility

The SADC Renewable Energy Entrepreneurship Support Facility is being implemented in the sixteen-member countries of the SADC and builds on the Memorandum of Understanding between SACREEE and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), signed in February 2017, to support renewable energy market development in the SADC region through capacity building of small to medium-sized entrepreneurs (SMEs).
