Project Description
From the World Bank: The development objective of the Renewable Energy (RE) for All Project for Haiti is to scale-up renewable energy investments in Haiti in order to expand and improve access to electricity for households, businesses, and community services. The project comprises of two components. The first component, grid-connected distributed RE will initiate the scaling up of on-grid RE investments in Haiti, by demonstrating the feasibility and benefits of injecting solar photovoltaic (PV) generation into electricity of Haiti (EDH) grids and developing a supportive policy and regulatory environment for private sector-driven RE investments. It consists of following sub-components: (i) demonstration pilot solar PV investments; and (ii) technical assistance and enabling framework for RE scale up. The second component, off-grid distributed RE will extend access to clean and modern energy services to households, communities, and enterprises that are not served by EDH by deploying a wide range of off-grid electrification options. It consists of following sub-components: (i) RE municipal grids; (ii) RE for productive and community use; (iii) distributed systems; and (iv) capacity building and technical assistance.
