Follow Up Of Pilot Market Study Consultancy On Small Solar Systems in Mozambique

Following the results of a study made by MARGE in June 2016 regarding a Design of market development approach of small solar systems in Mozambique, FUNAE has decided to carry out three key pilot projects demonstrating some potential and viable private sector possibilities in the development of a commercial market for solar equipment. Each business proposal would be realised by a private company, which would receive some financial assistance for willing to start this as a pilot operation. The activities would be implemented commercially with the expectation that these could be rolled out on a larger scale in the future, whereby private companies co-invest in the expansion. The three pilots were:(i) PAYGO (ii) Solar battery Charging Stations (iii) Maintenance services for institutional PV systems. Private firms were selected based on their technical and financial proposals for each of these 3 pilots.
