Project Description and Objectives


In 2011, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) funded project entitled ”Removal of Barriers to Solar PV Power Generation in Mauritius, Rodrigues and Outer Islands” was signed between the Government of Mauritius, Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities (MEPU), the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and UNDP Mauritius with the support of GEF.

As detailed in the UNDP project document referenced PIMS 4333, the objective of the above-mentioned project “is to accelerate sustainable on-grid PV electricity generation in Mauritius by leveraging $ 17.5 million in private sector investment over its four-year implementation period. This, in turn, is expected to generate direct global benefits of almost 13,295 tons of CO2 over the same period and almost 5,318 tons CO2/yr thereafter in avoided greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The project will do this by introducing a conducive regulatory framework that will facilitate private sector participation in supplying the national grid with PV-generated electricity at market-determined prices and assist the Government in closing private sector funded PV investments. It is envisaged that this project will enable Mauritius to meet (and maybe even surpass) its target of 2% of electricity generation from on-grid PV by 2025, as established in its ‘Long Term Energy Strategy 2009-2025’.

This assignment is carried out under the ambit of Components 1 and 2 of the project document which include the formulation of a streamlined and comprehensive market-oriented energy policy,  a review of the Small Scale Distributed Generation Scheme and sustainable financing mechanisms to attract private sector investors.
