Uganda National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Alliance (UNREEEA) stands to consolidate the position and leadership role of the different Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) associations in this sector in Uganda.
Currently UNREEEA represents these associations:
- Biomass Energy Efficient Technologies Association (BEETA),
- Uganda National Bio gas Alliance (UNBA),
- Hydro-power Association of Uganda (HPAU),
- Energy Efficiency Association of Uganda (EEAU), which represent energy auditors.
- Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA)
In the alliance’s constitution, the common Vision, Mission and Goals are highlighted. The member associations have also formulated their strategic objectives and future activities.

are generally defined as energy forms that come from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as solar power, wind power, hydropower, geothermal heat – and biogas, to name the major ones. Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in distinct areas: electricity generation, cooking needs, air and water heating (or cooling), motor fuels, and energy services (mainly rural / off-grid).
Renewable energy means that the is on a
Biogas for example can be produced from grass, cow dung, vegetable leftovers etc. They all are renewable resources.
are organic natural resources which can replenish or regenerate after usage and consumption. This can take place either through biological reproduction or other naturally recurring processes:
Grass is eaten by a cow which digests and leaves cow dung on the ground; there it decomposes and gives back nutrients and organic matter to the soil which enables grass seeds to germinate and eventually – with the support by sunlight and water – grass will grow and the circle can begin again.
Renewable resources are a part of Earth’s natural environment and the largest components of its ecosphere. While on an international level many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also very well suited to rural and remote areas in a country like Uganda, where energy is often crucial in human development.
