3 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.

4 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

5 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.

6 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.

7 PROCESS TO ACTION PROGRAMME

8 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

9 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

10 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

12 (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***

13 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

14 Country Organizational or Regional Capacity/Experience Gained (e.g. through projects funded by EUEI. GVEP, ESMAP, GNESD, COOPENER, ProBEC, REPEM etc): Improving Energy AccessAddressing Energy Security Mobilizing Financing for Energy Infrastructure Botswana Rural electrification and network extension programmes, Coal Distribution Programme, GTZ Biomass Energy Strategy-GTZ Expansion of local generation capacity (Morupule), Petroleum Strategic Storage Programme electricity projects funding; SIDA setting up, management and use of special energy funds ( National Petroleum and Electrification Funds), MozambiqueProBECEUEI - GVEP Lesotho In collaboration with EUEI, we developed strategies and programmes for energy access Coordination of projects- we were part of the steering committee that co-ordinated installation of energy efficient stoves Securing funding for the Mphaki project from ADB Zimbabwe GVEP, COOPENER, ACP EU Energy Facility, Trust Funds in UK USAID, ACP EU Energy Facility ACP EU Energy Facility, REPEM, TRUST Funds in UK Tanzania GVEP, ProBEC,(Biomass energy conservation) GEF, SIDA, (Financing solar energy applications) GEF, SIDA, World Bank, African Development Bank SADC/SAPPEnergy Trading-NORAD, SIDA World Bank ESMAP EU capacity building DBSA link as financial coordinator-project packaging

15 CountryCapacity Levels on a scale of 1(poor) to 5 (very good) energy policy Development energy planning creating political and regulatory frameworks project/programme development project implementation energy project resource mobilization M&E of energy project Accessing donor/development agency resources Other (specify) Botswana Mozambique Lesotho Zimbabwe Tanzania SADC/SAPP

16 The major constraints to achieving appropriate capacity limited manpower,/staff turnover/ right technical expertise,

17 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 CAPACITY FOR M&E AWARENESS ON THE AEEP AND HOW AFRICA CAN BENEFIT

18 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

19 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

20 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.

21 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

22 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.
