dc.description.abstract Conventional energy generation is a fundamental cause for competing demands on natural resources of both water and energy sectors, and is a significant contributor to anthropogenic climate change. This research seeks to identify barriers to wide-scale penetration of renewable energy technologies (RETs) in Southern Africa, investigating cases in Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique. The framework provides analysis through several factors: market failure, market distortions, economic, financial, institutional, technical, social, cultural and behavioural, and other barriers. Following the barrier identification, a review of policy was conducted. Countries are moving closer towards solutions for water and energy as well as understanding the linkages. en
