Rwanda Universal Energy Access Program (RUEAP)

Pays de mise en œuvre

This program is a large, multi-donor energy sector investment financing program to support the Government of Rwanda’s energy access objectives during the period of the National Strategy for Transformation (2017-2024). It aims to improve access to energy and efficiency of energy service delivery to households, businesses, and public institutions in Rwanda. It aims at a total investment of US$ 471 million + EUR 180 million from development partners.

As part of the program, the Rwanda Energy Access and Quality Improvement Project (EAQIP, 2020-2026) has a component (3b, USD17+3 million) aiming at increasing access to clean cooking solutions for 2.15 million people (500,000 households) through results-based financing (RBF).

This component will support both urban and rural households, aiming at phasing out charcoal use in urban areas and reducing the reliance on firewood in rural areas.
