As Uganda, the region, and indeed the world at large grapple with the triple threat of conflict, climate change, and COVID-19, there’s a critical window of opportunity to accelerate off-grid energy to spur recovery at both household and business levels. The Government of Uganda remains unwavering in its commitment to increasing access to energy, aiming for Universal Access by 2030. Recent initiatives include a pilot tariff for industrial parks, a declining block tariff for domestic consumers, and the launch of a last-mile strategy targeting 60% grid access by 2030. Underpinning this strategy, the government has secured a funding facility of USD 638M to support both on-grid and off-grid energy solutions under the Energy Access Scale-up Project (EASP).
