Zambia has potential energy out put per unit area (Solar radiation) average 5.5kWh/m²/day (MEWD,2008) and up to 3000 sunshine hours per year, significant potential for solar PV.

The International Finance Corporation (IFC) (World bank) is assisting Zambia to set up two of its first Utility-Scale Solar Power Projects in an attempt to help deal with the electricity shortage.

Zambia’s Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) recently partnered with the IFC in an programme called “Scaling-up Solar”. Under this programme the IDC and IFC intend to package and bring on board 600 MW of solar power.
