The Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa (RERA) is a sub-organization of SADC States for the cooperation of their national electricity and energy regulatory authorities. The Secretariat is located in Windhoek, Namibia.
The objective of this international organisation is to harmonise policies, legislation, standards and regulatory procedures and to ensure effective cooperation between Member States.
The Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa (RERA) develops guidelines for cross-border electricity trade and investment between Member States and thus establishes the framework for the respective national regulatory authorities.
The organization was founded by SADC energy ministers on July 12, 2002 at a conference in Maseru.
Their creation is based on NEPAD agreements and several multilateral agreements:
SADC Energy Protocol, 1996
SADC Energy Cooperation Policy and Strategy, 1996
SADC Energy Sector Action Plan, 1997
SADC Energy Activity Plan, 2000.
RERA officially started its activities in Windhoek on September 26, 2002. The organization was registered under Namibian law on 3 October 2003.
The SADC Regional Energy Access Strategy and Action Plan of March 2010 stated their intention to extend the scope of the RERA to other energy sources.
