Below you will find a list of projects that SEA has embarked on in the past.

  • Towards a Just Energy Transition in South Africa through affordable electricity for low income households

    SEA's role in this project explored the challenges of affordable electricity service delivery and established an evidence base to equip government to review current policies related to electricity access and explore how to mitigate the potentially negative impacts of renewable energy development on the sustainability of basic electricity access across the country.  

  • Municipal Wheeling Revenue Impact Assessment

    SEA's role in this project was to develop models to evaluate the impact of wheeling on municipal revenue as well as the wider socio-economic impacts of wheeling on local economies.

  • C40 South Africa Building Programme

    SEA's role in this project was to accelerate the development and implementation of energy efficiency policies and programmes for new buildings in South African cities by 2020 to work towards a net zero carbon performance.

  • KZN GHG Mitigation Opportunities

    In this project, SEA aimed to build technical capacity within the provincial governments of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Gauteng on greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and climate finance application processes.

  • City of Johannesburg Electric Vehicle Readiness Support Programme

    The project supported the implementation of the ‘electrification of passenger vehicles’ and ‘decarbonising the grid’ work streams of the City of Joburg’s Climate Action Plan. SEA's primary goal in this project was to build the capacity of City officials in order to be EV ready.

  • The renewable opportunity for achieving universal energy access in African C40 cities

    This project showcased how C40 African cities have lead the continent’s progress towards achieving SDG 7 through renewable deployment and built their profile as key stakeholders of the transition to renewable energy systems. SEA was commissioned to develop knowledge products showcasing how renewable energy sources are relevant in an African urban context and how support from the international community can help cities trailblaze an energy revolution for Africa.
