Renewable Energy Description:

NDP10 builds on NDP9 and it's continuation.

During NDP 10, Government of Botswana will concentrate on increasing the use of renewable energy as a way of augmenting existing energy sources and improving security of supply for other fuels.

The possibility of a solar thermal power station will be explored, private sector involvement in renewable energy will be encouraged, and renewable energy use will be enforced in governmental institutions.

Regulations for solar and biofuels will be developed to guide production and use of renewables. There is a need to develop and build capacity for these technologies, and training will be undertaken to achieve this. A comprehensive communication strategy is needed so as to reduce chances of non-acceptance by the general public.

This record supersedes:9th National Development Plan 2003-2009 (NDP9)
