BNEF – Overall Clean Energy Investment Slows, Yet Wind Surges To Record Levels

New investment in clean energy worldwide fell 18% last year to $287.5bn, despite a record year for offshore wind, according to latest figures from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Chinese slowdown and falling costs of solar power were two of the reasons. However, even though overall investment in clean energy was down in 2016, the total capacity installed was not. Estimates from BNEF’s analysis teams are that a record 70GW of solar were added last year, up from 56GW in 2015, plus 56.5GW of wind, down from 63GW but the second-highest figure ever.

Emerging Uganda: Building Energy Achieves Financial Close For First Solar Plant

Uganda has one of the lowest electricity consumption per capita in the world, with an average electrification rate of 18.2%. The country’s power sector suffered from a shortage of generating capacity and a lack of reliable and affordable electricity is hindering more sustainable economic growth. In this scenario, the project will also contribute to the socio-economic development of the Tororo area in Eastern Uganda, where it is located. Additionally, it will play a role in terms of employment, thanks to the creation of 250 jobs during the construction phase, and 8 local jobs during the operational one. The solar plant will serve the equivalent of 36,200 people via generation and has an annual avoided GHG rate of 7,400 tCO2eq.USD 19.6 million for the construction of the 10 MW (14GWh/y) Tororo Solar North PV power project which will be ready in about 7 months.
