The Uganda market assessment report on the Productive Use of Renewable Energy (PURE) in Uganda provides an in-depth analysis of the potential, challenges, and opportunities of solar energy for productive use in Uganda.
The report aims to inform policymakers, practitioners, and investors on the status and potential of solar energy for productive uses in Uganda. It does this by sharing:
- analysis of PURE products and companies in the market,
- an overview of PURE customer profiles,
- analysis of the demand, supply, and anticipated trends in productive use of solar energy,
- a review of current PURE business models,
- a review of the enabling environment, including policies, programmes, and plans.
This market assessment was authored by the Centre for Research in Energy and Energy Conservation (CREEC) in conjunction with GOGLA and the Ugandan Solar Energy Association (USEA) with the financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Union (EU), through the international initiative Water and Energy for Food (WE4F).
The Uganda roadmap provides a situational analysis and the needed strategic interventions to leverage the productive use of solar energy (PUSE) in Uganda. It further provides an analysis of the policy and legal framework, an overview of the PUSE applications in the country, and provides a list of challenges, barriers, and opportunities. It goes further to provide for financing and implementation actions, a monitoring and evaluation framework and to lay the channels for collaboration between the Government of Uganda, Development Partners, and all sector players to achieve a common vision for the country.
This National Roadmap for Productive Use of Solar Energy (NR-PUSE) has been prepared by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) in partnership with the Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA), with support from GOGLA and the financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Union (EU), through the international initiative Water and Energy for Food (WE4F).
