The objective of the NAMA is to develop a robust, transparent and functional framework targeting energy generation and end use sectors

Activities: (2017 - 2021)
The NAMA will seek to overcome the regulatory, institutional, technical, financial and social barriers for the scaling up of RE and EE NAMA through the dissemination of 1,000 bio-digesters, 1,300 high efficiency motors in tea factories, and 205 solar PV net metering systems with battery storage.

It will: 1. Develop a robust provincial inventory system that could be updated periodically and aggregated at the national level using web-based EnerGIS database management system 2. Develop a decision making tools such as MACC tools for analyzing and prioritizing a pipeline of bankable NAMA that could be implemented 3. Leverage public, private and CSOs resources through the NAMA Implementing Entity for the implementation of bankable RE and EE NAMAs based on viable and cost effective business models to incentivize value chain actors to reduce supply risks and create demand and 4. Develop a robust and transparent MRV system that are accurate, reliable and credible and avoid double accounting.
