Rwanda offers tremendous opportunities to suppliers worldwide, having among the strongest solar resources in the world. In particular, the region offers excellent potential for concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) systems. It is generally characterized by a savannah climate and its geographical location endows it with sufficient solar radiation intensity approximately equal to 5kWh/m2/day and peak sun hours of approximately 5 hours per day.
The Government of Rwanda has identified the development of indigenous fuel sources, specifically renewable energy sources, as key to ambitious plans for economic growth. As one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa, importers and distributers of solar technology report a sharp increase in the demand for reliable solar technologies meet the electrification goals. Rwanda’s population is growing fast and access to affordable, clean power is vital to improving living standards and developing the country’s economic potential in the future.
