The national development Vision 2016, formulated in 1996, following nationwide consultations is Botswana's guiding framework for all national development programs and policies. The Vision recommends that Botswana develops a center of excellency for solar energy technology. A specific policy objective of the Government is to increase the share of renewable energy in the supply mix of energy in Botswana which is currently less than 1%. The four major areas where renewable energy can replace conventional sources of energy are hot water/space heating, electricity generation, off-grid/rural energy services and motor fuels.
