During its 34th meeting on 24th of July 2015, the energy ministers of the South African Development Community (SADC) pledged to install additional 24GW of capacity by 2019, 70% of which is expected to come from renewable energy sources. Furthermore, SADC ministers endorsed the outputs of the work on framework conditions for green mini-grids, done by SADC’s Regional Electricity Regulators’ Association (RERA) and the RECP, and obliged member states to report on their national implementation on an annual basis. Finally, the establishment of the “SADC Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency” (SACREEE), to be hosted by Namibia, was formally approved. RECP has provided extensive support during the development stage of establishing SACREEE.
