According to bank provided information, the project development objective is to increase access to energy and broadband services and strengthen the financial performance of the power sector.
The project has four components:
Component 1: Peri-urban and Rural Electrification (US $85 million). Building on the ongoing activities under the WB-financed Mozambique Energy for All (ProEnergia) Project (P165453), this component will provide access to electricity to over 1,000,000 beneficiaries primarily through grid densification and expansion. This component will finance the design, procurement of materials and construction works required to electrify all participating households, businesses and public facilities in the project target areas with high population density (in peri-urban and rural areas).
Component 2: Improvement of EDM financial performance (US $60 million). This component will improve financial performance of EDM and strengthen structural and institutional framework of the sector. This component will comprise the following two pillars: a) improve electricity sector financial sustainability through measures to enhance EDM’s financial and operational performance; and b) enhance sector governance and institutional capacity by supporting the government’s policy positions being proposed through a revision of the Electricity Law. It will also aim to capture opportunities to better leverage EDM’s fiber-optic network and utilize its transmission infrastructure to support broadband market development while generating additional revenue.
Component 4: Technical Assistance and Implementation Support (US $10 million). This component will finance capacity building, sector studies, implementation support for the implementing agencies (expected to be EDM, MIREME, FUNAE, and MCT), and verification of PBCs. The capacity of FUNAE will need to be substantially strengthened for implementation as its track record has been uneven.
