Energising Development (EnDev) is a global multi-donor partnership program implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft fUr Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) that facilitates market-based access to modern energy services in 20 countries worldwide.
In Uganda, En Dev, under the Uganda Energy Programme (PREEEP), cooperates closely with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMO) in providing access to modern energy services to Ugandan households, social institutions and SMEs through market development for solar PV and energy-efficient cookstoves.
Low access to electricity remains a major barrier to Uganda’s socio-economic development and current trajectories for rural electrification clearly point to off-grid solar PV playing a vital role in providing electricity to off-grid households, social institutions, and productive users.
In its solar component En Dev Uganda, therefore, aims at growing the market for off-grid solar PV systems for the above targets groups through results-based partnerships with solar distributors as well capacity building for distributors and end-users and targeted support to the enabling environment. EnDev Uganda’s interventions strengthen the expansion of distribution networks, marketing outreach, service, and product quality, as well as awareness and knowledge among the targeted users.
Targeted technologies include Tier 1 -3 Solar Home Systems and solar-powered appliances for domestic and productive use offered on both cash and PAYG (pay-as-you-go) Basis. GIZ is recruiting a Coordinator Solar Component to support the implementation of its program. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON THIS JOB OPENING
