The Renewable Energy Community in South Africa has, for a while now, felt the need to establish an umbrella body to coordinate and align the activities of it’s key stakeholders. The following organisations, in the pursuance of international best practice, have come together to form such a body, provisionally called the South African Renewable Energy Council (SAREC):

  • Sustainable Energy Society of Southern Africa (SESSA)
  • The South African Solar Thermal Industry Association (SASTELA)
  • The South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA)
  • The South African Wind Energy Association (SAWEA)
The council’s steering committee have been meeting on a weekly basis since it’s inception and the minutes of those meetings are available for download here:
