Lesotho Energy Policy 2015-2025 is a framework policy that sets out the strategic direction of the country's energy sector developments. It is aligned to the Vision 2020 and the NSDP and promotes development of environmentally cleaner renewable energy and increasing its share in the country's energy mix.

Energy access targets:
The country has set electricity access target at 40 % of the population by 2020, increasing from 5% in 2000.

Renewable energies are indicated as one of the tools to increase electrification rate in the country.  In order to attract investments in this sector the Renewable Energy Feed-In-Tariffs (REFIT) programme is planned to be developed.
