Preparing Namibia's solar future

Namibia's ministry of mines and energy, through the Namibia Renewable Energy Project (NAMREP), released its findings on a recent study conducted to establish the level of implementation of various solar energy technologies in Namibia.
Among the key results of the study, it was found that solar energy technologies, such as solar water pumps, are already more cost effective in the short and medium term and under some conditions are indeed cheaper to purchase and install than conventional energy systems. The study also found a profound lack of information about solar energy technologies, as well as a highly centralised supply structure with most solar suppliers being located in Windhoek and limited technical personnel in rural areas.
