Minister of Infrastructure, Amb Claver Gatete, has briefed the international community on Rwanda’s progress in providing electricity to its people and the role of solar energy in its program.

Gatete made the briefing on September 8, during the World Solar Technology Summit organized by the International Solar Alliance (ISA).

It is a technology conference attended by participants from India, France, and other members of the ISA.

In his remarks, the Minister thanked ISA for the idea of organizing the meeting and highlighted how the solar power program is contributing to the delivery of electricity to Rwandans.

"The establishment of a solar-powered coalition is a good idea because it provides a platform for more innovation through the use of solar power," he said.

Gatete further briefed participants on Rwanda’s progress in delivering electricity to the people.

“In Rwanda, we have always valued the importance of innovation and the use of renewable energy to accelerate the use of solar energy, through the National Strategy for Transformation (NST1), which we have set up to be accessible to all electricity in 2024. ”

He added that in the electrification program, solar energy will take a high-table position.
