Launched in September, 2020, as part of the promotion of increased electricity generation capacity in the country, Mozambique’s Renewable Energy Auction Programme (PROLER) was developed by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy with the support of the European Union.
By launching auctions under a public tender regime, the Mozambican government hopes to confer transparency and competitiveness on the renewable energy sector, thereby attracting the best possible national and international investors.
