Plans for an EAC Renewable Energy Centre in the works

According to recent updates by All Africa, plans to establish a renewable energy efficiency and conservation centre for the East African Community (EAC)  are on track. The deputy Secretary General of  EAC in charge of Productive and Social Sector, Jessica Eriyo, said in a conference in Arusha, Tanzania,  that the centre would promote best practices in developing renewable energy technologies and act as a centre of excellence for energy conservation and energy efficiency in the region.
Speaking of the potential of the region in renewable energy, she said that  the biomass available in the region could be “harnessed and utilised in a modern, clean and sustainable manner." Likewise, she noted that the EAC region was endowed with both renewable and non-renewable energy resources though many of these remain under-developed, untapped and therefore under-utilised.
Meanwhile, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see Rusizi I and II hydro power projects rehabilitated to operate at full capacity.
