Interactive SADC Map launched!

Interactive SADC Map launched!

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is one of the oldest regional economic communities on the African continent. However regional challenges persist particularly around energy access and energy security. In order to help meet the region’s energy needs and increase the deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the region, REN21 has produced the SADC Interactive Map.   This SADC Interactive Map and the accompanying SADC Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report, provide a comprehensive overview of renewable energy and energy efficiency policy and market developments across the 15-country region.  Using the Interactive Map, information can be selected by country, technology or policies and targets.
