Focusing on Rwanda, this country report is part of a three-part series on Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE) in East Africa. It assesses the financial challenges faced by the energy access sector and proposes financial aggregation, specifically the aggregation of distributed renewable energy (DRE) receivables, as a possible avenue.
When appropriately designed, financial aggregation can bridge funding gaps and expedite capital deployment. The report examines the market readiness for DRE financial aggregation in Rwanda and analyzes national factors using the Political, Economic, Social (demographic), Technological, Legal and Environmental factors (PESTLE) framework. It also explores the energy sector’s current status, and delves into various DRE sub-sectors. The study identifies barriers, quantifies market opportunities, and concludes with an action plan for stakeholders.
