The Atlas of the Renewable Energies of Mozambique evaluates and maps the potential for production of electrical energy from each of the existing renewable resources (hydro, wind, solar, biomass/MSW, geothermal and wave) and, furthermore, identifies and studies, at technical and economic pre-feasibility level, several hundreds of projects.

Overall, Mozambique shows enormous potential in renewables, of more than 23 TW and thousands of possible projects, from small projects of rural electrification to the large hydro plants of the Zambeziriver. Of this potential, about 7 GW,

equivalent to more than 500 projects, mostly hydroelectric but also aeolic, solar, biomass and geothermal, constitute alternative solutions for Mozambique’s electrical system, to be considered.

FUNAE makes available at the link below an autonomous web-site showing a summary of the work done and a characterization of each of the resources. The web-site also includes a project and resource mapviewer, with the location and basic
summary information of each of the projects identified. The access to the mapviewer, the paper version and pdf version of the Atlas, as well as more detailed information relative to each of the projects can be acquired to FUNAE at:

  • Projects

Construction of Three Photovoltaic Stations in Niassa

The construction project of three photovoltaic stations officially started with the signing of a MoU between FUNAE and the implementing company of the project, Hyosung Corporation. The project valued at $32 million has the funding from the Government of South Korea


Renewable Energy Atlas

The project of producing Renewable Energy Atlas for the country consists of mapping the potential sites for the development of the projects in the area of renewable energy.


Construction of Quissanga Fuel Station

The Filling Station is located in the district of Quissanga in Cabo Delgado Province.
The process for construction began in late 2009 with the launching of a public tender. In the meantime construction works are on-going, i.e. assembling of the concrete structure and subsequently a water hole will drilled and then electrical wiring from the national network.

In this district, the fleet of cars consists of local government vehicles, private motorbikes, vans that transport passengers to the provincial capital, Pemba.

There is less economic activity in Quissanga being that in the existing small stores one can only buy basic items and fish products.


Rotanda Mini-hydro Power Plant

Rotanda Mini-hydro power is located in Sussundenga district, Rotanda Administrative Post in Manica Province. Construction works are on course and the hand over is expected for the next months.
