In the recent past, private sector players in the energy sector who are mostly members of the Uganda National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Alliance (UNREEEA) have played a significant role in providing energy for Social and Economic Development in Uganda. However, in providing energy services some challenges still exist which need immediate action. To address these challenges, UNREEEA with support from GOGLA undertook a needs assessment and value proposition survey within its member network an exercise that ran from December 2021 to April 2022.
The survey investigated the status of member businesses, companies, and entrepreneurs in UNREEEA membership, captured and analyzed challenges of the RE market, policy and regulatory environment, skills and training gaps, the implementation gaps, and general challenges affecting sector advancement.
To facilitate the survey process GOGLA contracted Earth Partners to take lead as the consultant on data collection, analysis and report writing. The Consultant worked very closely with UNREEEA and the member associations. The survey started during the Covid 19 period that had lots of measures and restrictions put in place. The methodology of the survey focused on a sampled number of RE businesses, companies, and Individuals from the UNREEEA member network. Online interviews, questionnaires, and focus group discussions were used to collect sufficient and accurate data during the process.
We are pleased to inform you that the final draft of the survey report is out and you are invited to an online meeting to validate the report before its dissemination. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 10th May 2022 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
