The five solar-plus-storage facilities will be located in Zambézia and Nampula provinces.
French independent power producer Neoen is developing the facility, which will be the Sub-Saharan nation’s largest PV plant upon completion.
Two PV plants are set to be built under the Project for Promotion of Auctions for Renewable Energies program, being implemented with the support of Mozambican utility Electricidade de Mocambique, which is likely to be the future off-taker of the solar energy generated.
A €4 million fund will be used to support an initiative launched by the French Development Agency and the country’s power utility Eletricidade de Moçambique, E.P. (EDM).
The government of the eastern African nation has revealed plans to bring power to remote areas in the provinces of Maputo, Gaza, Inhambane, Sofala, Manica, Tete, Zambézia, Nampula, Niassa and Cabo Delgado.
The 40 MW project, which is being developed by Norwegian developer Scatec along with investment fund KLP Norfund Investments, is the country’s first large-scale solar facility.
