Namibia currently has no legal framework in place to support renewables, with existing policies supporting all technologies.
In mid-2012, an eight-month solar home system was developed, the details of which are yet to be released. The World Future Council states that although no official purchasing arrangement exists, two of Namibia’s regional electricity distributers are already buying electricity from small producers at the average annual price charged by NamPower. However, private sector stakeholders complain that this price is not high enough to encourage a wider uptake of net metering.
Unfortunately, although a FiT programme is currently being developed it is not likely to include solar power.
