Climate Change and Renewable Energy
in Zambia

In the face of the climate crisis and aided by rapidly advancing technological progress, a trend towards the large-scale development of renewables is observed around the world. A trend that holds many benefits especially for countries that are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Being blessed with up to 3.000 hours of sunshine a year, Zambia carries enormous potential for the scale up of solar PV plants – unlocking this potential cost-effectively will be the key to providing sustainable electricity to all.

The webinar aimed at outlining opportunities for collaboration in the field of renewable energies as an answer to the climate crisis, and discussing financial guarantees and some of the key barriers to investments.
The virtual event offered the opportunity to discuss the results of the study Integration of Variable Renewable Energy Sources in the National Electric System of Zambia, which assesses the maximum amount of variable renewable energy that can be integrated into the grid while maintaining its stability.
