The Rural Electrification Authority of Zambia and the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to monitor and support the country’s electrification efforts through data collection and analysis.
They aim to achieve this by promoting renewable energy technologies, such as household and mini-grid solar solutions, especially in rural areas with little access to electricity.
Namene Solar will distribute their award-winning SM100 solar lights to rural homes and in collaboration with local schools across four provinces of Zambia: Western, Southern, Eastern and Lusaka.
