The Namibia Energy Institute (NEI)
The Namibia Energy Institute (NEI) represents the NUST's dedicated commitment to serve as a national information resource base for sustainable energy use and management. The initiative was officially launched in October 2006, under the name Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Institute (REEEI), following the signing of a cooperation agreement between the then Polytechnic of Namibia and the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME). The mission of the Namibia Energy Institute is to contribute to Namibia’s industrialisation by linking energy research, technology, policy, and education to the needs of industry, and to national socio-economic development imperatives, initiatives and programmes.
