Mozambique

Strategy for New and Renewable Development 2011-2025

Executive
Strategy
Passed in 2011
/Developed and adopted pursuant to Resolution 62/2009 this strategy aims to sustainably diversify Mozambique's energy mix to include renewable resources in order to meet domestic demand for energy, while protecting the environment of Mozambique.
 
 Outlines the following three central objectives of the strategy:
 (i) improving access to energy services through renewables
 (ii) developing renewable energy technology
 (iii) accelerating private investment in renewables
 
 Separates the strategy into two types of actions: actions for the off-grid systems and actions for the on-grid connected systems. Specifically proposes, for off-grid systems to:
  • begin a large-scale PV programme for lighting and water pumping systems
  • begin a large-scale solar PV water and space heating programme
  • approve regulations relative to a solar PV water and space heating programme
  • establish fiscal incentives and licensing to stimulate private sector investment
 
 Devises specific fiscal incentives for off-grid investments in renewables, including: tax exemptions of equipment imports, VAT exemptions for rural electrification and expansion projects, and corporate tax exemptions for foreign companies who seek to expand rural electrification. Additionally, pursuant to this strategy a Solar PV Feed-in-Tariff has been proposed. Nevertheless, the above fiscal incentives have yet to be structured.
