The GEF-UNIDO project addresses the existing energy challenges of Guinea Bissau by promoting renewable energy investments in the electricity sector. The combined and integrated interventions in the areas of technology demonstration, policy support and capacity building will create an enabling environment for the scaling-up of renewable energy investments.

The project aims to achieve the following results:

  • Under the investment component a set of RE projects with a total capacity of 2.5 MW will be developed and implemented in two phases (Phase I and Phase II).
  • Under the policy component the GEF project will support the development and endorsement of the National Renewable Energy Policy (NREP) and National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP).
  • Under the capacity building component a national RE capacity building program will be developed and its implementation facilitated.

The project will contribute to the transformational change of the electricity sector to a sustainable low-carbon development path. Without the GEF intervention the main trends of the “business as usual” scenario would continue, this is, to continue using diesel fuel (or other fossil fuels) to meet their energy needs. The power generation system of Guinea Bissau would stay dependent on expensive imported diesel or heavy fuel oil.
