Transformation of Rural Photovoltaic Market in Tanzania Project

The Transformation of Rural Photovoltaic Market in Tanzania is a UNDP/GEF/GoT funded project aiming at reducing Tanzania's energy related CO2 emissions by introducing photovoltaic as substitute for fossil fuel (kerosene) utilized for lighting in rural areas. Geographically the project was targeting the Mwanza region with the aim to replicate the experience gained in Shinyanga, Kagera and Mara regions. The project has been operational since March 2004 with the first phase ended in December 2006 where a Mid?Term evaluation was conducted. The second phase was planned to overlap and intended for the replication of the Mwanza experience in Shinyanga, Kageera and Mara.
