INTRODUCING GET FiT ZAMBIA
The Zambian Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff (REFiT) was adopted by the Cabinet and formally launched by the Ministry of Energy in 2017. In December 2017, GET FiT Zambia became the official implementation Programme for the REFiT Strategy. The Programme aims to improve the investment framework for Renewable Energy through diversifying energy resources and promoting private sector involvement in small- and medium-sized renewable energy projects. Specifically, GET FiT aims at promoting project with a maximum size of up to 20MW adding up to a total of 200MW over a period of 3 to 5 years.
This will be achieved through the successful application of the Programme's five key components, each of which seeks to address specific barriers to small-scale renewable energy development that prevail in Zambia.
