In Mozambique, the overall electricity access rate is estimated below 30% in 2018, with around 5% of the rural population having access to energy.
In November 2018, the Government of Mozambique launched the National Energy for All Programme to advance the country towards achieving SDG7 by 2030. The programme will be implemented with financial support from the World Bank.
The programme focuses on grid expansion and densification but also acknowledges the role of off-grid, renewable energy-based solutions (such as solar home system and RE-based mini-grids) for reaching the most remote areas and populations.
