This EACREEE Strategic Plan provides a roadmap for our work, highlights the Centre’s major priorities for the next five years (2019-2023).
EACREEE will pursue new initiatives as well as complement the on-going initiatives in the EAC Partner States to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. The Centre seeks to work towards the creation of an integrated and inclusive EAC market for sustainable energy and clean technology products and services. Working with different partners, EACREEE will develop and implement Programme to accelerate deployment of a number of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies including solar, biomass, wind, and geothermal technologies. This will involve supporting development of regionally-harmonized standards and regulations, conducting training, awareness, sensitization and research, formulating policy and policy implementation instruments, and promoting investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency. In addition, the Centre will pursue initiatives toward reducing gender inequalities in energy access, energy entrepreneurship and workforce through capacity building of targeted groups, establishment of energy entrepreneurship fund and working with Partner States and humanitarian agencies to ensure that energy needs for displaced persons, refugees and their host communities are included in national energy planning.
EACREEE will also seek to work with cities in the region to develop and implement a Sustainable Energy Action Plan. The plan will identify and promote implementation of activities relevant to climate change mitigation and adaptation measures that are achievable and compelling to local authorities in the EAC region.
