Republic of Zimbabwe: National Renewable Energy Policy

The National Renewable Energy Policy (NREP) was developed under the overall framework laid out by the National Energy Policy of 2012. The policy also recognises that an upper middle income economy of 2030 needs to be driven by clean, sustainable energy sources. Apart from improving the share of renewable energy in the overall energy mix and addressing issues of Climate Change, this policy also focuses on driving cost-effective implementation of sustainable energy sources, social upliftment through community involvement, gender equality and employment generation as laid out in other various Government Acts and Policies.
