The mandate of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) is “To Establish, promote the Development, Strategically Manage and Safeguard the Rational and Sustainable Exploitation and Utilization of Energy and Mineral Resources for Social and Economic Development”.
The Government of Uganda (GoU), with support from the World Bank, is preparing the Uganda Energy Access Scale-up Project (EASP). The proposed EASP will support GoU’s efforts to scale-up access to electricity for households, refugee and host communities, industrial parks, commercial enterprises and public institutions, so as to spur socio-economic transformation, in line with Uganda’s Vision 2040 and other Government policies. EASP activities will build on earlier Government initiatives, in the energy sector, to support the expansion and strengthening of the electricity distribution network, scale-up service connections within the network, and increase access to off-grid electricity in refugee settlements and their host communities, and to clean cooking services outside the electricity distribution network.
The Government of Uganda (GoU) has received funding from the World Bank towards the
implementation of the proposed Electricity Access Scale-Up Project (EASP). The funding
under the EASP project will be implemented by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral
Development (MEMD) toward implementing infrastructure and connections under the new
Electricity Connections Policy (ECP). Through the EASP, the MEMD will provide funding
for connections through a Results Based Financing (RBF) approach. These connections
should be implemented within the Umeme Limited footprint.
