FLASH NEWS 


Energy Private Developers Association "EPD" initiated Energy Business Dialogue.


February 18, 2016 at Lemigo Hotel, EPD had organized Energy Business Dialogue. It aimed at sharing all necessary information that could attract more investment in energy by private sector, and reach the government target of generating 563 MW by 2018.

Participants in this dialogue including: private sector, Government institutions, Development Partners and other stakeholders.  discussed investment and financial opportunities in Energy sector in Rwanda.


During the Energy Business Dialogue, The Minister of State in charge of Energy and Water in the Ministry of infrastructure Germaine KAMAYIRESE encouraged Private sector partners to invest heavily in the development of different energy sources.


 

In her opening remarks, Honorable Germaine KAMAYIRESE said that, the growth of energy sector in Rwanda plays a paramount role in the country’s economic growth that is emerging progressively. "Much as the Government is investing heavily in the development of different energy sources (hydro, methane gas, geothermal and peat), private sector participation is also being encouraged to take part in the phases of any  project cycle, namely design, build, finance, maintenance and operations.

 


Moreover, Honorable KAMAYIRESE applauds the vital role that private sector has played in supporting government energy development at all levels, She also pledges that the government will continue to consult private sector on new initiatives such as the rural electrification strategy in the final stages of development.

 


Dr Ivan TWAGIRASHEMA, Chairman of EPD said that, the main purpose of consolidation is to join their efforts in terms of electrifying as many households as possible in a short period of time as well as to collaborate easily with the government. "It is significant for private companies to merge efforts to speak with one voice; this makes the process easier for the government to coordinate with private sector efficiently.”

 


He highlights that with the successful Public Private Partnership put in place they will move faster towards attaining energy sector projections that will fasten development through industrial and agricultural sectors.

 


In last three months, the government of Rwanda in partnership with private sector signed power purchase and concession agreements with different firms to enhance energy generation. These firms include: SYMBION POWER which will produce 50MW from Lake Kivu Methane gas, IGNITE to provide solar energy solutions to 250,000 households and a Turkish Firm HAKAN to operate and transfer a 80MW Peat power plant to produce electricity.

 



Energy Private Developers attended WEPEX Exhibition in Nairobi, Kenya

With support of our partner Bfz, Energy Private Developers Association "EPD” attended the Water, Electricity and Power Exhibition (WEPEX) held February 2nd – 4th in Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi – Kenya. This was a very big opportunity for EPD to show the available opportunities for energy business in Rwanda, to attract potential investors in energy sector in Rwanda, to learn how to organize a similar technological energy exhibition in Rwanda

 

Energy opportunity in Rwanda



As Rwanda’s economy continues to surge forward, demand for energy to drive it continues to grow rapidly.

Power generation is set to grow to over 563 Mw by 2017 – a projected growth of nearly 500%.

The Government of Rwanda demonstrates commitment to partnering with investors in delivering this potential – by offering generous incentives and guarantees, both through PPP and IPP structures.

This is creating unrivalled opportunities for investment in electricity generation including alternative energy sources such as Methane, Hydro, Geothermal, Peat and Solar.

Energy Sector in Rwanda

OVERVIEW

·  Rwanda’s primary energy source is biomass which accounts for 86.3%. Other sources are hydropower which accounts for 61.23% , diesel (fossil fuel) 30.80%, methane gas 2.32% and solar 5.63%.

·    Total installed generation capacity is 160MW, which provides 22.5% connectivity rate.

GENERATION TARGET

·         Power generation is set to grow from 160MW currently produced to 563MW by 2017- a projected growth of nearly 400%.

·         Biomass (wood energy) to drop from 86.3% to 50% by 2020; Access to electricity to expand to 70% by 2017; Public institutions to be connected 100% by 2017.

·         The Government of Rwanda is committed to partnering with investors in delivering this potential by offering generous incentives and guarantees, both through Public Private Partnership (PPP) and Independent Power Producer (IPP) structures.

STRATEGIES

·         Diversification of Energy Sources by developing domestic sources of energy and phasing out fossil-fuel generation.

           Support and attract private investment in power generation through Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) and Private Public Partnerships (PPP’s) structures, underpinned with minimum 25 years concession and Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).

Renewable Energy:

·         Targeting 90% electricity from renewable sources.

 Incentives to energy projects :

  • The Government of Rwanda provides transmission access to all power projects at its cost.
  • Provision of road access, water supply and all infrastructures needed to develop projects.
  • Generous fiscal and non-fiscal incentives including tax exemptions on power equipment.
  • The Government of Rwanda acquires at its cost land for power projects or compensate private developers for land acquisition.

 INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN RWANDA

Target: from 160 MW to 563 MW by 2017

The above target is in line with Rwanda’s 7 Year electricity development plan (2011-2017) that aims at tapping into the following domestic sources of energy:

Methane Gas; Hydro-power; Peat to Power; Geothermal energy; Solar Energy; Biomass; Waste-to-energy
