Case Study

Mocuba Solar PV IPP (Mozambique) [2017]:

Trinity advised the project company and sponsors, including Scatec Solar and KLP Norfund Investments, on Mozambique’s first utility scale solar PV power plant in Mocuba.  The project increased Mozambique’s energy generation capacity by 40 MW and provides over 79 GWh of electricity annually, equivalent to the electricity consumption of more than 170,000 households in Mozambique. 

The project’s strategic location will reduce energy transmission losses, improve the security of energy supply in northern Mozambique and stabilize the grid. It is estimated that the power plant’s connection to the Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) grid will result in a 7% improvement in the network default level.

Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world and access to electricity is extremely limited. In rural areas only around 6% of the population has an electricity supply. National demand for electricity is growing significantly due to industrial and commercial growth. Many district capitals depend on expensive and often unreliable diesel power generation, but Mozambique’s potential power generating capacity is substantial. Transmission bottlenecks mean that decentralised power plants based on local energy resources such as solar, hydro can be important in supplying remote regions.

The project is an excellent example of how private-public partnerships can deliver renewable energy and support further economic growth in Mozambique. EDM and the Government of Mozambique have demonstrated strong leadership in taking this project forward, paving the way for further investments in renewable energy in the country.
