    The objective is to achieve a goal of 200 MW of photovoltaics installed by the year 2020. For this goal to be reached, the NAMA aims to achieve local capacity building in order to incorporate this technology in the legal and technical regulatory framework, while generating knowledge and expertise for the sustainable future incorporation of photovoltaic energy power in the national energy mix.

    Activities: (2015 - 2017)
    The financial support requested will be used in capacity building activities, as well as for the creation of infrastructures, in particular:

    • Strengthen the assembly and maintenance of the national solar network;
    • Creation of testing laboratories;
    • Capacity building support in the regulator organism and the Public Electric Utility (UTE);
    • Creation of specific technical regulatory framework for this resource;
    • Training professionals in the areas of engineering and architecture as well as technicians who will work in the development and maintenance.

    Financial support will be managed similarly to previously executed projects: "Introduction of Wind Energy in Uruguay" and "Electricity production from biomass". For this, it is necessary to identify the barriers to technology development and define specific measures.
