Government has floated a portfolio of small renewable energy projects to foreign investors.

The Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy said it hopes to attract $500-million in investment.

Around 60% of the country’s population has no access to electricity and the project is expected to give everyone electricity by 2030.

“The initiative is intended to ensure that within a 15-year horizon the Mozambican population has access to electricity outside the national power grid, thanks to small autonomous systems.”

The planned project will provide electricity to 332 villages around the country, using hydro and solar power.
