    Promote the use of solar water heaters and standalone solar powered lighting kits in rural and urban households and buildings

    Activities: (2016 - 2030)
    This Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) targets mitigation in the Housing sector in Rwanda and focuses on promoting the use of renewable energy technologies in rural and urban households and buildings across Rwanda.

    The NAMA will promote the use of solar water heaters (SWH) in urban households and buildings (e.g. hotels, hospitals, hostels) and the use of standalone solar powered lighting kits in rural households, housing classified as ‘social’ and/or ‘affordable’ and small commercial establishments (e.g. shops, micro-enterprises etc.)

    The NAMA will encourage the development of a local businesses and industry by creating a market for solar lighting kits and SWH which are currently imported into Rwanda. This will allow the private sector to play a positive and central role in the success of the NAMA, as the private sector will be the hardware and service provider.
