Realization of renewable energy potentials and energy efficiency technologies could play a significant on the road towards ecological and socio-economic transformation if efficiently tapped. Several initiatives across the globe in-cluding Tanzania have been made to ensure sustainable energy for the people.
RE potential has remained inadequately tapped to enhance productivity for socio economic transformation. Less Community Participation, lack of standalone renewable energy regulatory framework and coordination, extreme poverty to large part of communities and low level of awareness has continued to setback the progress towards increasing RE contribution in the energy sector. The increased education and awareness will initiate the anxiety to establish, develop and exploit a wide range of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in the country.
• Mapping and quantify RE potentials
Continue enhancing cost effective mapping and quantify all RE potentials including geothermal, solar, wind, tidal and alike in the north, south and central regions of Tanzania
• Stand-alone RE policy and strategies:
The government needs to put forward the stand-alone RE policy and strategies that harmonize all highlighted efforts in analyzed documents. This could provide a better country direction.
