- Green Energy
NamPower’s core business is the generation, transmission and energy trading, which takes place within the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP), the largest multilateral energy platform on the African continent.
NamPower supplies bulk electricity to the Regional Electricity Distributors (REDs), Mines, the Namibia Water Corporation Ltd (NamWater), Farms and Local Authorities (where REDs are not operational) throughout Namibia.
The key role players in the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) are the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) as custodian of Namibia’s energy sector; the Electricity Control Board (ECB) as the regulator of the ESI; NamPower as Namibia’s electricity utility; the Regional Electricity Distributors (REDs) to which NamPower supplies bulk electricity to and some Local Authorities (in areas where there are no REDs) as the country’s distribution licensees across the country. A number of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have recently come on board as generators of renewable energy.
