The Renewable Energy Policy for Uganda
This Policy sets out Government's vision, strategic goals, principles, objectives and targets for promoting and implementing renewable energy investments in Uganda. The Policy Framework provides a basis for the formulation of planning, implementation and monitoring of renewable energy programmes, as well as projects that respond to the needs and priorities of the population at various levels of the economy.
It is based on the need to address energy challenges by implementing the Energy Policy in general and the Power Sector Reform in particular. It also aims to respond to threats posed by the increasing energy prices, environmental degradation, climate change, as well as Government's commitment to poverty and gender responsive energy actions. Furthermore, implementation of the Renewable Energy Policy will result in the disposition of Uganda's commitments at the Bonn Conference on Renewable Energy in 2004.
