1CAPACITY & INFORMATION NEEDS ASSESSMENT for the SOUTHERN AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY (SADC) REGION EECG CONSULTANTS PTY LTDBoxGaborone, BotswanaTelFaxMobile
3SADC 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.
4KEY ENERGY ISSUES RELIANT ON BIOMASS ENERGY 70% SPIRALING OIL PRICES AFFECTING REGION- RESOURCES OF OIL AND NG BUT NO INFRASTRCTURE FOR REFINERIESELECTRICITY SHORTAGE- inadequate capacity & INCOMPLETE INTERCONNECTIONSHIGH COAL DEPENDENCE AND LITTLE LARGE HYDRO EXPLOITEDUNTAPPED RE- SMALL HYDRO, SOLAR, WIND BAGASSE
5ALIGNMENT TO AEEPEnsuring 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.
6ALIGNMENT 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.
7PROCESS TO ACTION PROGRAMME Inception Phase Report and Action PlanCape Town Workshop Needs AssessmentLiterature ReviewStakeholder ConsultationsStakeholders' FeedbackDakar WorkshopNeeds Assessment
8CAPE 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
9IDENTIFIED CAPACITY AND INFORMATION NEEDS AT CAPE TOWN WORKSHOP How to generate up-to-date energy data to improve decision making and technology selectionCost and benefits of different energy technologies and business modelsEngineering skills for local production of energy technologiesHarmonize energy policies, strategies, regulations and adaptation to a changing environment
10contdCapacity of regional institutions for relevant policy research & knowledge transferInformation on different sources of energy supply & near-market technologiesInformation on different types of financing options pricing regimes and marketing strategies
12RESPONSES (4) GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS OF ENERGY, FIVE (5) NGOS AND ONE DEVELOPMENT AGENCY.SADC SECRETARIATAND THE RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAMME (REEEP)Got SAPP RESPONSE*** responding organizations took exercise seriously***
13STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATIONS Experiences from past projects in the regionCapacity levels for various aspects of the energy sectorenergy policy development,energy planning,creating political and regulatory frameworks,project/programme development,project implementation,energy project resource mobilizationM&E of energy projectand 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 capacityHow capacity gaps can be filledNecessary action to enhance and mobilize capacity in the regionSelected Action Programme items
14CountryOrganizational or Regional Capacity/Experience Gained (e.g. through projects funded by EUEI. GVEP, ESMAP, GNESD, COOPENER, ProBEC, REPEM etc):Improving Energy AccessAddressing Energy SecurityMobilizing Financing for Energy InfrastructureBotswanaRural electrification and network extension programmes,Coal Distribution Programme, GTZBiomass Energy Strategy-GTZExpansion of local generation capacity (Morupule),Petroleum Strategic Storage Programmeelectricity projects funding; SIDAsetting up, management and use of special energy funds ( National Petroleum and Electrification Funds),MozambiqueProBECEUEI - GVEPLesothoIn collaboration with EUEI, we developed strategies and programmes for energy accessCoordination of projects- we were part of the steering committee that co-ordinated installation of energy efficient stovesSecuring funding for the Mphaki project from ADBZimbabweGVEP, COOPENER, ACP EU Energy Facility, Trust Funds in UKUSAID, ACP EU Energy FacilityACP EU Energy Facility, REPEM, TRUST Funds in UKTanzaniaGVEP, ProBEC,(Biomass energy conservation)GEF, SIDA, (Financing solar energy applications)GEF, SIDA, World Bank, African Development BankSADC/SAPPEnergy Trading-NORAD, SIDAWorld Bank ESMAPEU capacity buildingDBSA link as financial coordinator-project packaging

17SUMMARY OF CAPACITY NEEDS CAPACITY FOR PACKAGING BANKABLE PROJECT PROPOSALS FOR FUNDERS AND VARIOUS DEVELOPMENT AGENCIESCOMMUNICATION AND NEGOTIATING /LEGALPROCESSES AND PROCEDURES FOR ACCESSING EU FUNDSPOLICY FORMULATIONPROJECT PLANNINGCAPACITY FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENTCAPACITY FOR RESOURCE MOBILIZATION & MANAGEMENTCAPACITY FOR M&EAWARENESS ON THE AEEP AND HOW AFRICA CAN BENEFIT
18IDENTIFIED CAPACITY AND INFORMATION NEEDS AT CAPE TOWN WORKSHOP How to generate up-to-date energy data to improve decision making and technology selectionCost and benefits of different energy technologies and business modelsEngineering skills for local production of energy technologiesHarmonize energy policies, strategies, regulations and adaptation to a changing environment
19CT Needs contdCapacity of regional institutions for relevant policy research & knowledge transferInformation on different sources of energy supply & near-market technologiesInformation on different types of financing options pricing regimes and marketing strategies
20Suggested current capacity could be enhanced through:- Internal and External Training.Experience sharing between countries & through attachments among SADC countriesAwareness raising and familiarisation with AEEP and the various DONOR AGENCIES involved.Show casing of good project examples within the region.
21PREPARING ENVIRONMENT FOR UNLOCKING Capacity RECS and Member States should start by setting clear Energy Policy goalsMainstreaming of Energy in Development for SADC and MSDrawing up implementation plans,CREATE NATIONAL Energy FUNDS for project support,CREATE incentives for private sector and NGOs PARTICIPATION
22RECOMMENDATIONSPhysical consultations more effective-eliminates ambiquitySome level of energy policy, planning etc but expression of weak capacity for M&E-immediate capacity building targetSharing of KIBESA platform as it is developed.Studies on how Africa can benefit from the AEEPShare experiences on how to access EU Energy Facility (late!). Build capacity within CEMA group.
