Post/ title: Executive Director of SACREEE
Salary Scale: (according to Southern African Development Community (SADC) guidelines)
Duration: 2 year (can be renewed subject to performance)
Duty station: Windhoek, Namibia (with travel as required)
Purpose: Lead the establishment and operations of SACREEE
UNIDO is supporting SADC with the establishment of the SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE), a regional platform to promote renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) market in the SADC Region. The cross-cutting factor to challenges in the dissemination of RE and EE technologies and services is the absence of a dedicated regional institution that would harmonise efforts to develop markets for renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and services. In particular, such an institution could be instrumental in coordinating the development of this sector in the region thereby creating significant market potential that will justify and spur large-scale investments. Accordingly, the SADC Regional Centre is being established. SACREEE will coordinate the efforts and interventions in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors by various actors from governments, private sector to civil society organisations. In particular, SACREEE will provide a platform for addressing market barriers to wide-scale deployment of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and services. The establishment of SACREEE was endorsed by SADC Council in August 2015, after the approval by the SADC Ministers responsible for Energy in July 2015.
