October 2016

News

A case study on SNV Tanzania's RBF for Pico-Solar project was included in AEEP's "Energy Access: Best Practices 2016”. The report is a compilation of 24 project case studies and programmes on access to clean energy in Africa.

The publication draws upon experiences from the private and public sector, as well as from NGOs and research institutions and showcases the latest innovations with a unique focus on renewable energy projects in Africa. A vast portfolio of projects using different technologies such as bioenergy, small hydro, PV and wind energy are covered in the publication. It aims to support and incentivise decision-makers to continue improving framework conditions for the implementation of business models based on renewable energy solutions while enabling project developers and financiers to further boost the quality and quantity of rural electrification projects.

The Energy Access work stream under the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) was initiated in April 2016 and is mandated to: close the gaps between public, private, NGO and the academic sector; promote business and technology solutions to effectively tackle energy access; raise public interest for clean energy access as a topic; where necessary contribute to the SE4All and SDG 7 processes on energy access.

Our RBF for Pico-Solar project is funded by DFID through EnDev and aims to provide quality solar energy to rural households in Tanzania's Lake Zone.
