OVERVIEW OF SUPPORT : Besides Germany´s huge bilateral engagement in the energy sector in South Africa under the focal area Green Economy, Germany is also providing support to the regional Programme “Southern African Power Pool Programme” (SAPP) via KFW Development Bank. This programme, which has subsequently been extended also to the Eastern and Western African Power Pool, aims to contribute to an environmentally and climate friendly energy supply in the Southern African Region as well as to regional integration through energy interconnections by supporting private and public environmentally and climate friendly investments in renewable energies and energy efficiency through credit lines to DBSA.
