Mozambique’s first solar panel factory commences construction

Last week, construction for Mozambique’s first solar panel factory got underway with technical personnel from Funae present. The site is located in Beleluane, Matola Rio Administrative Post, Boane District in Maputo as is being built after a bi-lateral cooperation between the governments of Mozambique and India. The site’s main focus will be to reduce the import and acquisition costs of power systems that are produced in other countries.

Provincial Director for Maputo, Castro José Elias, affirmed that, “the solar panel factory represents an important milestone on the development of our country, since apart from contributing to the fact that more people in the rural areas should access electricity from alternative sources like solar, the infra-structure will create jobs thereby contributing to reducing levels of unemployment in the country.” Angelique will be responsible for the development of the plant, which is expected to take 12 months.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
