Uganda: REA seeks assistance with renewables
The Rural Electrification Agency is to invite expressions of interest from consultants and contractors to assist with the Decentralised Renewables Development Programme, which aims to develop an off-grid electrification master plan for the islands on Lake Victoria and pilot net-metering using grid-tie solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. The programme, one of the projects under the country’s Scaling-Up Renewable Energy Programme, is being supported by the African Development Bank, which has provided a project preparation grant from the Strategic Climate Fund.
