Power Generation From Solar Parks Up 14% in Q1

Electricity production through solar parks in Mozambique grew by 14 per cent in the first quarter of the year, revealed the budget execution report released on Monday (20) by Lusa.

According to the document drawn up by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, there are six large solar parks and other small power stations in the country which together produced 19,688 MegaWatt hours (MWh), compared to 17,328 MWh in the same period in 2023.

The report recalled that last year the country had projects for 125 MW solar power plants, emphasising that the new Energy Transition Strategy foresees investments of around 80 billion dollars by 2050.

Mozambique will initially develop ‘at least’ 1000 MW of new solar photovoltaic capacity in Dondo, Lichinga, Manje, Cuamba, Zitundo and other sites to be identified, and 200 to 500 MW of new onshore wind energy capacity, namely in Inhambane and the town of Lagoa Pathi, in the district of Manhiça, Maputo province, by 2030.

By 2050, the aim is to have at least 7.5 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity installed in the country and up to 2.5 GW of wind power capacity.
