Zimbabwe’s Minister of Energy and Power Development, Victor Kandoro, said that the country is developing a renewable energy policy. He added: “The country boasts of having renewable energy in the form of solar, wind and hydro,” reported All Africa.
Kandoro’s comments came as a response to climate experts who advised Zimbabwe to adopt renewable energy technologies, in order to meet the country’s pledge to reduce greenhouse gas energy emissions by 33% per capita by 2030, reported ESI Africa.
Kandoro added: “the ministry is currently developing a renewable energy policy which seeks to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy technologies in both rural and urban areas. Barriers to the adoption of the technologies will be addressed in the Policy framework.”
The minister stated that consultative workshops will be carried out to gather the views of people on the challenges the country is facing in its efforts at renewable energy.
