About SACREEE

news-image

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) was established by the SADC ministers responsible for Energy in 2015 as a subsidiary agency of SADC Secretariat, with the assistance of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO). SACREEE was mandated to contribute to:

increased access to modern energy services, and  

improved energy security across the SADC Region;

Through the promotion of market based adoption of renewable energy (RE) and energy efficient (EE) technologies and energy services in SADC Member States. In implementing its mandate, SACREEE supports the region’s sustainable development objectives through: 

resource mobilisation; 

policy; 

quality assurance; 

capacity building and knowledge management; 

communication; and 

 Promoting investment in RE and EE projects and programs.

In that vein, SACREEE is working on a number of projects and programmes that include RE Entrepreneurship Support (with support from IRENA), EE Lighting and Appliances (with support from Sida), SADC Industrial Energy Efficiency (with support from the EU), Women and Sustainable Energy (with support from National Renewable Energy Laboratory), Energy-Water-Food nexus, amongst many others.  And, additionally at their 36th Meeting in Ezulwini, Swaziland in July 2017, the SADC Ministers responsible for Energy mandated SACREEE to coordinate the implementation of the SADC Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Strategy and Action Plan (REEESAP).
