Solar Energy

 

With a potential of 4.5 kWh per m2 per day and approximately 5 peak sun hours, solar energy has a huge potentiality in Rwanda. The country has already engaged into solar solutions as a lighting substitute for remote areas for ICT in schools, clinics and hospitals. Solar water heaters could be used for water heating to reduce the consumption of electricity in hospitality, clinics, hospitals and catering services and households. There is currently an investment potential to generate power from “solar / wind hybrid systems” with an aim to provide access to electricity in rural communities that currently have no access to the interconnected grid.

Rwanda’s Total on-grid installed solar energy is 12.08 MW. Households far away from the planned national grid coverage are encouraged to use Solar Photovoltaics (PVs) to reduce the cost of access to electricity. The Rural Electrification Strategy in Rwanda approved in June 2016 outlines strategies through which Rwanda’s households could “have access to electricity through the most cost effective means by developing programmes that will facilitate both the end users to access less costly technologies and increase private sector participation in the provision of these solutions” (MININFRA, RES, 2016). 

In line with this strategy, the Energy Development Corporation Ltd. (EDCL) signed MoUs with 21 private companies to increase the supply of off-grid solar home systems, improving the country’s supply chain, bringing solar systems closer to the clients countrywide. As a result, today, 11% of Rwandan households are accessing electricity through off-grid solution, mostly solar home systems.

Suppliers which currently work with EDCL are the following:
