PROJECT FICHE:
DESCRIPTION

The objective of this programme is to reduce participating countries’ dependency on imported fossil fuels by displacing their use in electricity generation with economically viable investments in renewable energy (on the supply side) and energy efficiency (on the demand side). The programme will provide funding for investments for renewable energy and energy efficiency as well as technical assistance for institutional strengthening, capacity building and project support.

RESULTS
  • Greater capabilities in identifying, assessing and implementing renewable energy and energy efficiency projects.
  • Improved enabling environment (legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks for the electricity sector).
  • Enhanced market for renewable energy and energy efficiency financing.
  • 6 MW of additional capacity from renewable energy sources.
  • Fossil fuel consumption reduced by 105,000 BBL/year.
  • Reduction of 39,000 tons CO2/year.
