Mozambique reached a very important milestone in respect to the implementation of renewable projects, with the opening session of the proposals for the Proler Project. This program was developed by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy (MIREME) with the support of the European Union for the promotion of private investment for the increase of electricity generation capacity in the country. It consists of structuring projects for public tenders through auctions for the award of concessions for the generation of electricity from renewable sources.
The Proler Project has the participation of several MWES: Olga Utchavo Madeira, Telma Matavel Nkutumula, Marcelina Mataveia, Marcelina Joel, Cláudia Jeremias, Nilza Matavel, Taciana Peão Lopes, Leonilde Victor and Mayra Pereira.
