Uganda National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Alliance (UNREEEA) is a coalition of industry associations within the renewable energy and energy efficiency space in Uganda. It was incorporated in 2015 to consolidate the voices of the many associations, and to improve the business environment for the adoption of renewable energies.
Our mandate is aligned with policy and advocacy and enhancement of skills development and knowledge management within the sector through facilitation of dialogue with the government, promotion of self regulation to address quality standards and advocate for a market for renewable products.
With a renewable energy resource potential of 2000 MW of hydro power, 450 MW of geothermal, 460 million tonnes of biomass standing sustainable annual yield of 50 million tons, and an average of 5-6 kWh/m2 / day of solar energy, wind and geothermal power, Uganda has the ability to meet its skyrocketing energy demands sustainably while promoting business through a vibrant public-private sector partnership as it is the development trend worldwide today.
The Alliance as an apex organization brings together a network of six industrious member associations under which various companies and enterprises subscribe. The associations include:
- Biomass Energy Efficient Technologies Association (BEETA)
- Uganda National Bio-gas Alliance (UNBA)
- Hydro-power Association of Uganda (HPAU)
- Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA)
- Energy Efficiency Association of Uganda (EEAU/Energy Auditors)
- Wind Power Association of Uganda (WPAU)
