1 Overview of CABURESA Project Capacity Building for Renewable Energy SMEs (and End Users) in Africa Hotel Paradise on the Nile Jinja, Uganda 22 – 23 June 2010 AFREPREN/FWD Energy, Environment and Development Network for Africa

2 Project Background Project duration: January December 2012 Countries covered: – Zambia – Tanzania – Uganda – Kenya – Mozambique Kenya Tanzania Mozambique Zambia Uganda

3 Project Objectives Enhancing the skills and expertise of interested SMEs/agro- industries/tourism entities/rural institutions and financiers on renewable energy development Strengthening the capacity of local, national and regional financiers in the development of pro-poor renewable energy and energy efficiency options in sub-Sahara Africa. Promoting an enabling environment for renewable energy and energy efficiency among SMEs/agro-industries/tourism entities/rural institutions in Eastern and Southern Africa

4 Expected Activities Phase I: Inception Phase – Launching of the Project Phase II: Project Implementation Phase – Capacity Building Models for demonstration & training Training seminars Attachments – Investment Promotion Identify SMEs in renewable energy to support to scale up operations Identify end-users who could benefit from use of renewable energy – Policy Development and Outreach Promote sound renewable energy policies for adoptions Seminars for policy makers

5 Expected Outcomes Investment support for at least 10 SMEs/agro-industries/tourist entities/rural institutions (feasibility studies, co-financing of equipment) Capacity building support for at least 10 SMEs/agro-industries/tourist entities/rural institutions Training for 100 people including specialized hands-on technical training Regional studies Models + full-scale and working renewable energy & energy efficiency technologies installed – Large: improved institutional cookstoves wind pumps, wind turbines, boiler components, steam turbine components, small hydro components, control systems, etc – Small: improved household cookstoves, monitoring equipment, heat recovery systems, daylighting, solar water heaters, solar photovoltaics, etc Supportive renewable energy and energy efficiency policies proposed Draft standard power purchase agreements/Feed-in Tariffs proposed Engagement with policy makers at various levels

6 Progress to Date 10 demontration units (biomass institutional stoves) installed in Uganda Consultative Meetings with financing instutions, donor agencies and other key stakeholders. Signed Cooperation Agreements with 2 Potential National Partners Commissioned 7 studies in project countries (Zambia, Uganda, Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya) Over 150 potential initiatives have been identified for support

7 This Workshop… Key Objectives: – Sensitize stakeholders on the benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency – To bring together stakeholders interested in biomass energy specifically in the development of institutional energy-efficient woodstoves for schools. – Set the stage for replicating the limited success registered in schools in and around Jinja in others parts of Uganda as well as other countries within the region – Propose a sustainable financing mechanism in which schools and other institutions could benefit from by obtaining financing for installation of institutional energy-efficient stoves. – Learn from the challenges facing energy-efficient stove dissemination and options available to overcome the challenges identified Participating countries: Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Kenya Participating institutions: – Educational Institutions – Schools and Universities – Government Agencies – CSOs – NGOs – Research Institutions – Micro-finance Institutions Kenya Tanzania Zambia Uganda

8 This Workshop… Workshop Organization: – Organized by KORD – First 2 days on CABURESA and 3 rd day on SustainergyWeb – Interactive format: Presentations, Plenary Sessions, Group Sessions, Exhibit and Field Visits Key Issues Addressed: – Benefits of institutional energy-efficient woodstoves to schools. – Potential for replication of the limited success registered in chools in and around Jinja area within other parts of Uganda and in other countries within the region – Financing options for installation of institutional energy-efficient stoves in schools and other institutions – Lessons learnt from the challenges facing energy-efficient stove dissemination and options available to overcome the identified challenges Participating countries: Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Kenya Participating institutions: – Educational Institutions – Schools and Universities – Government Agencies – CSOs – NGOs – Research Institutions – Micro-finance Institutions
