Private businesses in the renewable energy sector are asked to submit their proposals until 19.11.2018

The overall aim of the project is to develop the Rural and Renewable Energy Agency into an effective and efficient organisation with the capability to implement and fulfill its important mandate. A pilot program of solar rural electrification will demonstrate those governance structures, and is expected to electrify 1,500 households in rural areas.

Importantly, the strategy document and Master Plan will be used to garner and guide further financial and technical support of Liberia’s energy sector from donors, the private sector, and partner governments.
