ECA has been commissioned by the IFC to review existing policies and regulatory frameworks related to distributed generation (DG) and tariff regimes in six Southern Africa countries (Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe) to identify challenges for small-scale distributed generation (SSDG) in the commercial and industrial sectors. Following the review of the relevant regulations, ECA will provide recommendations on how to support private investment in SSDG and storage in the six target countries.
