Zambia is endowed with a wide range of energy resources, particularly solar, biomass, hydro and other renewable sources that are still largely untapped. Renewable energy development has the potential to help meet growing demand for electricity. However, public and investor support and understanding of the renewable energy potential of the country would benefit from more publicity on the importance of renewable energy.
To address this important energy and economic issue, working closely with Zambia’s Energy Regulation Board, IDC, REA, and the Ministry of Energy, USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub is finalizing a 30-second Public Service Announcement (PSA) and a two-minute Investor Promotions Video for future renewable energy outreach and marketing. These products are in the final stages of local stakeholder review and input and will be finalized in the coming weeks.
