Uganda National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Alliance

Market Building

The alliance supports market development through promotion of investment, research and awareness creation. 

In partnership with government and other sector stakeholders, the alliance supports market awareness with a focus on energy and climate change.

We use this as a demand side management tool to speed up the adoption rates of renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies for sustainable development in Uganda.

In efforts to boost market development, the alliance also aspires to use both market based and scientific research to identify opportunities and bottlenecks for which it designs respective sustainable interventions.

Lobbying & Advocacy

The alliance intends to improve the business environment for member companies and enterprises within its network/supply side and the consumer side through advocacy and lobbying.

We aim this at establishing a conducive regulatory and tax environment for renewable energy and energy efficiency businesses in Uganda.

Capacity Building

In an effort to cope with Uganda’s fast growing renewable energy and energy efficiency market, the alliance strives to increase knowledge and skills of players in the private sector through capacity building initiatives.

Standards & Quality Assurance

Through a voluntary self-regulating mechanism, the alliance intends to ensure consumer protection through promoting adherence to quality and standards amongst its network members in the renewable energy sector of Uganda.
