On December 15th, ALER celebrated its third anniversary.
Last year was marked by the consolidation of ALER’s work in Mozambique, with the Conference “Renewables in the Electrification of Mozambique” which exceeded all expectations, the publication of the second edition of ALER’s “Renewables in Mozambique – National Status Report” and the Portuguese version of the RECP Mini-grid Policy Toolkit, and the support to the creation of the Mozambican Renewable Energy Association (AMER).
During 2017 it was also possible to ensure the necessary funding to ALER’s future activities, thus allowing the continuation in other lusophone countries of ALER’s renewable energy promotion actions for which the Association starts to be known.
In 2018 will be the time for Guinea Bissau and São Tomé and Principe to have their national status reports with projects funded by UNIDO and Instituto Camões, respectively, as well as the organization of an investment workshop in Guina Bissau as a side-event of the SEforALL Forum in Lisboa, a conferecen in Bissau and a regional mini-grid training for policy makers of all Africa Portuguese-speaking countries.
ALER continues to grow and place Lusophone countries on the renewables’map!
Thanks to all who have contributed to the success of these three years.
