    The NAMA has five key objectives which are:

    • Increase the level of renewable energy (for electricity) and contribute to the national long-term target of

    increasing the share of renewable energy within the power generation sector

    • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the power generation sector
    • Increase the rural population’s access to sustainable electricity.
    • Encourage an increase in rural community income generation, and improve rural livelihoods
    • Increase the level of private sector participation within the power sector.

    Activities: (2015 - 2030)
    The NAMA is planned in two phases:

    • Phase 1 activities will include the establishment of two types of ventures which will connect unelectrified rural

    communities: RE Community Energy Centres (RE-CEC) and RE Micro-Grids (RE-MGs).

    • Phase 2 ventures will comprise RE systems which will displace thermal generation at existing regional grids (referred to as RE Displacement Systems—RE-DIS) and RE independent power producers (RE-IPPs). Phase 2 will shift activities to a larger scale private sector model. Ventures will include six RE-DIS, of various

    capacities, and a seven megawatt RE-IPP.

    Impact and MRV

    Cumulative GHG reductions: 0.012 MtCO2e
    Mitigative capacity:

    No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


    Social: * energy access
    Economic: * job creation
    Environmental: * emission reduction

    MRV Framework:

    In the MRV, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) “Small-scale Methodology: AMS-I.L Electrification of rural communities using renewable energy, Version 03.0” will be used to monitor GHG emission reductions.

    Six key indicators will be quantitatively measured as SD proxies for Phase 1 :

    • Number of operating SMEs using energy from the ventures
    • Number of new jobs created
    • Number of hours of equipment use in the RPZ (hrs/yr)
    • Number of hectares of irrigated using water pumped by

    electricity from the hectare (ha/yr)

    • Number of households connected to the minigrid which are

    consuming energy

    • Number of public buildings (eg. schools. clinics) connected to the mini grid


    The UNDP MDG Carbon, funded by AusAid, provided financing in July 2015. The estimated full cost is for the implementation of Phase 1. The full cost of implementation include extensive capacity development support and capital investment for interventions A and B. The NAMA will be financed through national and international public funds (grants and loans) and private sector contributions and consumer payments. The international contribution is expected to be US$ 9.861 million, $1,569,000 for technical support and capacity development.
