CAPACITY & INFORMATION NEEDS ASSESSMENT for the SOUTHERN AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY (SADC) REGION

sadc institutional framework

The SADC Secretariat formulates the overall policy and is tasked to mobilize resources for implementation of regional projects.

  • SADC also operates through its subsidiarity bodies that act as implementing arms of the SADC.
    • RERA- Regional Energy Regulators Association,
    • SAPP- Southern Africa Power Pool,
    • REPGA- Regional Petroleum and Gas Association.
SADC INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK
key energy issues

RELIANT ON BIOMASS ENERGY 70%

SPIRALING OIL PRICES AFFECTING REGION- RESOURCES OF OIL AND NG BUT NO INFRASTRCTURE FOR REFINERIES

ELECTRICITY SHORTAGE- inadequate capacity & INCOMPLETE INTERCONNECTIONS

HIGH COAL DEPENDENCE AND LITTLE LARGE HYDRO EXPLOITED

UNTAPPED RE- SMALL HYDRO, SOLAR, WIND BAGASSE

KEY ENERGY ISSUES
alignment to aeep

Ensuring the delivery of improved, affordable, and climate-conscious energy security and access in Africa.

  • Effective Africa-EU dialogue on energy access and energy security;
  • Improved access to reliable, secure, affordable, climate friendly and sustainable energy services for both continents;
  • Increased European and African investments in energy infrastructure in Africa, including promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
ALIGNMENT TO AEEP
alignment with cema

CEMA Objectives

  • Strengthened capacity of African regional and national institutions,
    • mobilising and utilising existing expertise for energy policies and interventions,
    • for dialogue with development partners including those of EC and EU Member States.
  • Improved capacity of key African energy stakeholders to mobilise financing for energy investments, including the financing opportunities associated with the AEEP.
ALIGNMENT WITH CEMA
cape town

The group exercise consisted of three steps:

  • Problem Identification (case definition and energy requirements)
  • Solution formulation (design and implementation of an energy access programme)
  • Identification of capacity and information needs
CAPE TOWN
identified capacity and information needs at cape town workshop

How to generate up-to-date energy data to improve decision making and technology selection

  • Cost and benefits of different energy technologies and business models
  • Engineering skills for local production of energy technologies
  • Harmonize energy policies, strategies, regulations and adaptation to a changing environment
IDENTIFIED CAPACITY AND INFORMATION NEEDS AT CAPE TOWN WORKSHOP
contd

Capacity of regional institutions for relevant policy research & knowledge transfer

  • Information on different sources of energy supply & near-market technologies
  • Information on different types of financing options pricing regimes and marketing strategies
contd
responses

(4) GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS OF ENERGY,

FIVE (5) NGOS

AND ONE DEVELOPMENT AGENCY.

SADC SECRETARIAT

AND THE RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMME (REEEP)

Got SAPP RESPONSE

*** responding organizations took exercise seriously***

RESPONSES
stakeholder consultations

Experiences from past projects in the region

  • Capacity levels for various aspects of the energy sector
    • energy policy development,
    • energy planning,
    • creating political and regulatory frameworks,
    • project/programme development,
    • project implementation,
    • energy project resource mobilization
    • M&E of energy project
    • and Accessing donor/development agency resources.
    • The capacity needed by African stakeholders for achieving meaningful dialogue under the Africa- EU Energy Partnership (AEEP)
  • Major constraints stakeholders face to achieve desired capacity
  • How capacity gaps can be filled
  • Necessary action to enhance and mobilize capacity in the region
  • Selected Action Programme items
STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATIONS
summary of capacity needs

CAPACITY FOR PACKAGING BANKABLE PROJECT PROPOSALS FOR FUNDERS AND VARIOUS DEVELOPMENT AGENCIES

  • COMMUNICATION AND NEGOTIATING /LEGAL
  • PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES FOR ACCESSING EU FUNDS
  • POLICY FORMULATION
  • PROJECT PLANNING
  • CAPACITY FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT
  • CAPACITY FOR RESOURCE MOBILIZATION & MANAGEMENT

  • AWARENESS ON THE AEEP AND HOW AFRICA CAN BENEFIT
SUMMARY OF CAPACITY NEEDS

How to generate up-to-date energy data to improve decision making and technology selection

  • Cost and benefits of different energy technologies and business models
  • Engineering skills for local production of energy technologies
  • Harmonize energy policies, strategies, regulations and adaptation to a changing environment
IDENTIFIED CAPACITY AND INFORMATION NEEDS AT CAPE TOWN WORKSHOP
ct needs contd

Capacity of regional institutions for relevant policy research & knowledge transfer

  • Information on different sources of energy supply & near-market technologies
  • Information on different types of financing options pricing regimes and marketing strategies
CT Needs contd
suggested current capacity could be enhanced through

Internal and External Training.

  • Experience sharing between countries & through attachments among SADC countries
  • Awareness raising and familiarisation with AEEP and the various DONOR AGENCIES involved.
  • Show casing of good project examples within the region.
Suggested current capacity could be enhanced through:-
preparing environment for unlocking capacity

RECS and Member States should start by setting clear Energy Policy goals

  • Mainstreaming of Energy in Development for SADC and MS
  • Drawing up implementation plans,
  • CREATE NATIONAL Energy FUNDS for project support,
  • CREATE incentives for private sector and NGOs PARTICIPATION
PREPARING ENVIRONMENT FOR UNLOCKING Capacity
recommendations

Physical consultations more effective-eliminates ambiquity

Some level of energy policy, planning etc but expression of weak capacity for M&E-immediate capacity building target

Sharing of KIBESA platform as it is developed.

Studies on how Africa can benefit from the AEEP

Share experiences on how to access EU Energy Facility (late!). Build capacity within CEMA group.
