This report identifies four key actions that the Government of Senegal should undertake to stimulate the deployment of renewable energy in the country: (1) detail a comprehensive strategy for mapping renewable energy potentials in key areas, including techno-economic feasibility; (2) facilitate grid integration of electricity generated from renewable sources by enacting the Renewable Energy Law, implementing decrees that provide the necessary conditions, guidelines and tariffs to incorporate renewable-based electricity to the grid; (3) consider restructuring the institutional, legal and regulatory framework for utilizing land for biofuels production and adapt the rules of intervention of the regulator in off-grid small-scale renewable energy projects; and (4) identify the conditions needed to increase private sector involvement, especially for operation and maintenance, in the renewable energy sector.
