In 2015, the United Nations member states defined the seventh Sustainable Development Goal as: “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”. Subsequently, the Government of Mozambique, the British Government and various international partners signed the Energy Africa Mozambique Compact.
In signing the Compact, parties made a commitment towards improving access to energy for the people of Mozambique. The Launch of the National Programme - Energia Para Todos in 2018, reiterated the Government of Mozambique’s commitment to fulfilling the seventh Sustainable Development Goal and to the Compact. The British Government joins the Government of Mozambique in taking action for the achievement of those goals by establishing the BRILHO – Energy Africa Mozambique programme.
BRILHO’s objective is to improve and increase energy access for people and businesses, leverage the private sector’s innovation and investment capacity, resulting in market growth of clean cooking solutions; solar home systems; and mini-grids.See more
