Project Description
The development objective of the Power Efficiency and Reliability Improvement Project for Mozambique is to improve the operational capacity of the electricity network in the project areas and the operational efficiency of EDM. The project supports three components aimed at (a) rehabilitation and upgrade of the transmission and distribution network; (b) enhancement of the operational and commercial performance of EDM; and (c) institutional development, capacity building, and project implementation support. The components of the project also build on the recently completed Mozambique TUP (which focused on increasing transmission capacity) and EDAP (which focused on investments to extend the electricity service to new customers and the implementation of the new MISs).
