GET FiT Mozambique takes the first steps
The GET FiT (Global Energy Transfer Feed in Tariff) program started to be implemented in Uganda in 2013 and is now starting to take its first steps in Mozambique.
In 2014 the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy (MIREME) under the auspices of the Government of the Republic of Mozambique has introduced a Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff (REFiT) Regulation to incentivize private investments in the Mozambican energy sector.
Among other stakeholders, KfW has developed the Global Energy Transfer Feed in Tariff (GET FiT) Programme, which aims to fast-track the development of smaller renewable energy generation projects through a comprehensive set of tools, including tariff viability gap funding, targeted technical assistance, risk mitigation against off-taker risk, and renewable grid intervention support.

MIREME has requested financial assistance from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of the Government of the United Kingdom (BEIS) which will be channeled through KfW to undertake a feasibility study, which will investigate legal, technical and financial viability and develop a programme concept, financing structure and technical assistance facility for Mozambique. The study shall be carried out in 2017.
BEIS and KfW have decided to recruit a Coordinator for a contract period of 12 months starting immediately.
