The overarching theme “Investor Security and Bankability in Renewable Energy Project Development” will provide a roadmap for renewable energy project development post-IRP and its impact on the regional market. The programme will look at harmonising national strategies to support regional energy integration.

 Different renewable energy programmes in the region can support each other through sharing experiences and planning. The SARES programme will look at anchor renewable energy programmes in SADC, how to evacuate energy for disconnected communities, scaling private sector capital for IPP projects and manufacturing industry insights.

Please see below an overview of themes and topics to be discussed at this meeting. If you are interested in contrubuting to a panel discussion, giving a presentation or hosting a targeted workshop, please get in touch to discuss possible options.
