The sun is rising on a new era for Zimbabwe's energy sector, with solar power taking center stage. This exciting development promises to transform the way the nation generates and distributes electricity.


While independent power producers have been quietly installing solar panels for years, these installations have primarily served individual buildings or off-grid locations. However, a significant shift is underway. Over the next few months, a substantial boost in solar power generation is expected as independent producers ramp up their operations

Experts predict that by year-end, at least 10% of the national grid's power supply will come from solar sources, with that percentage steadily increasing.

Large-Scale Solar Projects Take Flight:

Several large-scale solar power stations are currently under construction, collectively adding another 100 megawatts (MW) to the national grid. This represents just the beginning of a major expansion in the solar energy sector.

The "proof of concept" phase is over, replaced by a booming industry attracting significant investment.

From Policy to Progress:

The recent International Renewable Energy Conference in Victoria Falls marked a turning point. The conference showcased tangible progress in securing funding and expediting project commissioning. Gone are the days of vague planning discussions; concrete details and investor-friendly policies are now taking center stage.

Government's Vision: A Multi-Pronged Approach:

President Mnangagwa is a strong advocate for both conventional and innovative solutions. The government actively encourages private companies to become independent power producers by simplifying licensing procedures and promoting grid-connected solar power stations. Additionally, for more efficient rural electrification, President Mnangagwa proposes the concept of "mini-grids." These localized solar power networks would serve villages or communities with a cluster of businesses and homes. Initially operating independently, these mini-grids could eventually be integrated into the national grid, further bolstering renewable energy sources.

Making Mini-Grids a Reality:

The success of mini-grids hinges on establishing a fair and transparent pricing structure. The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) is well-equipped to handle this task, ensuring consumers pay a reasonable price while preventing profiteering. Mini-grids offer a cost-effective alternative to individual generators or unreliable power sources, potentially bringing significant savings to rural communities.

Financing the Future: Diverse Options Emerge:

The conference also yielded positive developments in financing independent power stations. International investors are welcome participants, but exciting domestic investment opportunities are also emerging. Old Mutual, a major Zimbabwean investment company, has stepped forward, offering investment opportunities for ordinary Zimbabweans with a minimum investment threshold of US$10 million. This initiative complements the existing renewable energy fund, which enjoys strong support from the government and the United Nations.

Battery Production: A Strategic Move:

Discussions at the conference also highlighted the urgency of firming up plans for battery production. Zimbabwe's recent surge in lithium production, coupled with ongoing investment in processing plants, positions the nation perfectly to become a major player in battery manufacturing. With an abundance of lithium and readily available nickel, Zimbabwe possesses the key ingredients for domestic battery production. Developing this industry would not only benefit the solar sector but also foster the growth of a high-end engineering sector, a valuable asset for the nation's future.

Zimbabwe's embrace of solar power signifies a significant leap towards a more sustainable and secure energy future. 

With a combination of innovative solutions, strategic investments, and a focus on domestic resource utilization, Zimbabwe is setting the stage for a brighter energy landscape powered by the sun.
