According to a press release, during the meeting, members of the public and private sectors will discuss and present projects dealing with various off-grid technologies, including mini-grids, solar systems and improved cooking solutions.

Data from the report released in 2023 by the Lusophone Renewable Energy Association (ALER) and AMER shows that the country is making significant progress in the renewable energy sector, which has maintained its position as the main source of energy production, accounting for 62 per cent of generation in 2022, despite the increase in thermal generation.

In 2022, Mozambique exported 27% of its production to neighbouring countries, aiming to position itself as an energy hub in the southern African region.

Therefore, to ensure the country’s energy needs, the government approved the 2018-43 Electricity Infrastructure Master Plan, as a least-cost solution to integrate 20 per cent renewable energy into the national energy matrix.
