Pumping of water for domestic and productive uses has been difficult to maintain in Tanzania. This challenge is highly attributed by the higher costs of pumping water using conventional means such as diesel generators and electricity.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technologies have enabled rural communities of Tanzania to apply this technology for lighting, water pumping, charging of cell phones, etc. Community water projects using solar pumps have benefitted from reduced running costs as compared to diesel or electric water pumps.
Nationally Determined Contribution to "promote sustainable and climate sensitive health and sanitation infrastructure", and "enhance the use of renewable energy potential across the country", as well as its committment towards protection of forest resources.
This report details a recent exploration of climate finance readiness in Tanzania. The authors detail markets, policy, finance and the projected future of climate readiness in the country. And, they offer suggestions for policy and program development to improve climate readiness.
These guidelines are intended to assist small power project (SPP) developers, particularly those in Tanzania, to understand the SPP legal framework and process; the Energy and Water Utility Regulatory Authority's (EWURA) licensing requirements and procedures; how to obtain authorizations from other government institutions; and other technical, commercial, and regulatory requirements necessary to bring an SPP into operation.
The Government of Tanzania is establishing a framework for development of small power projects (ranging from 100 kW to 10 MW in capacity) using renewable energy sources in Tanzania. The goal of the framework is to reduce negotiation time and cost, opening the possibility of implementing rural electrification projects throughout the country. This website provides links to related documents and information.
This report describes the implementation of the Bioenergy and Food Security (BEFS) analytical framework in Tanzania. BEFS aimed to strengthen developing countries' technical understanding of how best to mitigate the impact of bioenergy development on food security. As part of its activities, BEFS also conducts training programs to ensure full ownership, replicability, and potential extensions to the analysis presented.
This renewable energy country profile is a knowledge product derived from the SREP Investment Plan. Its objective is to showcase to the renewable energy status of Tanzania, its development options, and opportunities and constraints.
