    Promotion of energy efficiency in the tea and coffee sector through Incentives and demonstration projects

    Activities: (2016 - 2030)
    This Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) targets mitigation through the promotion of energy efficiency activities in the Tea and Coffee sector in Rwanda based on specific incentives and demonstration projects.

    Both industries are private sector based, and the promotion of energy efficiency will focus on energy intensive activities in the tea and coffee industry pertaining to thermal energy and electrical energy requirements, namely roasting, drying, processing and packaging.

    Envisioned actions under the NAMA are: -demonstration of selected energy efficient technologies in existing production -establish an energy efficiency standards for all new factories -promote international eco-labeling -promote energy management, auditing and reporting and national best practice sharing

    The tea and coffee sector is currently private sector driven, and consists of ‘estates’ or industrial blocs (plantations integrated to a processing unit), tea/coffee grower cooperatives (for labourers), tea/coffee growers association (for owners), and small holders.

    Mitigative capacity:

    No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


    Social: Information has not been provided
    Economic: * Reduce the cost of production and a more sustainable value chain
    • Best practices sharing to other industries and new businesses that are being established (replication potential)
    • Increased exports, and upstream economic benefits
    • Employment
    • Cross sectoral opportunities with the agricultural sector will encourage the development of a vibrant agro-processing industry and improved cultivation of tea and coffee
    Environmental: * Reduced consumption of carbon intensive fuels (fossil fuel based electricity and heavy fuel oil) and lower consumption of wood based fuels
    • Improved the quantity and quality of tea and coffee

    MRV Framework:
    No MRV plan has been defined

    The full cost of preparation covers the cost of preparation for the NAMA Design and Document (0.110MUSD), a comprehensive Feasibility Study for energy efficiency and savings (0.085MUSD), and institutional level Capacity Development Support for NAMA finance and MRV (0.09MUSD).
