Throughout the world, one of the main goals of different governments and industry is to enhance the use of renewable energy. Africa, in general, is no exception, particularly Angola and Mozambique. In effect, in these two countries’ governments are working towards the promotion and acceleration of private and public investment in new renewable energy. As spelled out in the Angola Energy 2025 programme, one of the goals is to generate effective conditions of investment in new renewable energy, eliminating or dramatically reducing the distortion introduced by subsidies to fossil fuels, offering a suitable payback to investments, an appropriate mitigation of risks and a regulation that eases implementation and commits investors.
