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.

New Energy Record In UK: Wind Outperforms Coal In 2016

New statistics by Carbon Brief shows that more electricity was generated by wind than coal in 2016. It’s the first time that wind has surpassed coal for an entire year, generating 11.5% of the UK’s power, compared to just 9.2% from coal. Overall, a quarter of the UK’s electricity came from renewables in 2016. This milestone is a significant first for the UK, reflecting a massive decline in coal generation, which contributed just 9.2% of UK electricity last year, with 11.5% from wind. The coal collapse has seen its output fall to the lowest level since 1935.
