TAREA and WRI Upgrade and Promote the Use of Energy Access Explorer for Tanzania

Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) and World Resources Institute (WRI) have partnered in upgrading and promote the use of the Energy Access Explorer (EAE) for Tanzania. The Energy Access Explorer will provide market intelligence to the developers, identifying new market opportunities in renewable energy in Tanzania.

The work responds to the vast and urgent need to accelerate modern energy services to unserved and underserved areas in Tanzania. Expanding energy access sustainably will require the availability of robust data and analytical tools that can support project planning and market decisions. The implementation of the project will involve all necessary stakeholders: Ministries; Government Agencies; Academia; and Private Sector.

After the completion of the project, TAREA will take the responsibility of updating the explorer. To access the Energy Access Explorer, click the photo below.

URBIS Foundation and TAREA to Replace Diesel Pump with Solar Pump at the Preiswerk Girls Secondary School

TAREA and its German Partner URBIS Foundation are implementing the project “Enabling Girls of Preiswerk Secondary School in Ifakara Tanzania access clean water sustainably”. The project will be implemented in Ifakara, Morogoro region in Tanzania. The school is using a diesel generator for pumping water for the girls. The use of a diesel pump at the school costs EUR 5002/ year and emits 14,086KgCO2/year. When there are no funds to buy diesel, girls collect water from the river that has deadly crocodiles. The project will install a solar water pumping system to pump water from a borehole of 80m. The installation will consist of a ground-mounted solar array of 2.24kWp and a submersible Grundfos pump.

The project will result in 240 girls getting a reliable supply of water, 20m3/day, which will increase the level of hygiene and protect girls from infectious diseases like COVID-19; locally produced vegetables; increased planted trees; avoided 14,086KgCO2/year; reduced costs of water pumping; increased safety of girls; increased awareness of the potential of solar water pumping technology to the education sector and public in Ifakara.

New Solar Photovoltaic Crew in Masasi District

Landratsamt Enzkreis of Germany cooperates with Masasi District Council and Masasi Town Council to implement the project “Promotion of education and training through the use of renewable energies, the establishment of an Environmental Education Centre and CO2 compensation measures in Masasi”. The project will consist of solar photovoltaic systems installation, the establishment of the Masasi Environmental Centre and planting trees. The solar photovoltaic systems installation will be done at 8 secondary schools (Marika, Anna Abdallah, Chikolopola, Namombwe, Mkalapa, Chiungutwa, and Makong’onda), Chiungutwa Health Centre, Masasi District Council Hospital-Mbuyuni and Masasi Folks Development College.

One of the sustainability strategies of the solar photovoltaic systems that will be installed in Masasi District is building the human capacity on the installation and maintenance. TAREA has trained 16 persons from the respective institutions and villages. The class completed the training on 12.03.2022. To enable the crew to start working, TAREA has provided the trainees with starter tools.

TAREA and URBIS Foundation Promote Solar Water Pumping

TAREA and the German Partner URBIS Foundation are piloting the use of solar photovoltaic technology to supply water at the secondary school in a sustainable manner.

The solar water pumping system with the capacity of delivering 20m3 per day will be installed at Preiswerk Girls Secondary School in Ifakara. The solar pumping system will replace the diesel-powered water pump.

The action outcomes will be increased availability of water for domestic use and introduced vegetable growing. The expected impacts of the project will be students living a healthy life, reduced financial expenditure on energy, and reduced greenhouse emissions.

Clean Cooking to Combat Climate Change in Tanzania Project

<p>Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) in collaboration with <strong><a href="">OffgridSun Sr</a>l</strong> and Mutina Group to distribute/ install improved cookstoves (ICS) to reduce the use of fuelwood or charcoal in rural Tanzania. The project aims at reaching a total number of 2,500 households living in 6 villages located in Morogoro Region within Kilombero District (Mgudeni, Mwaya and Mang’ula A) and Malinyi District (Mtimbira, Sofi and Malinyi). By the implementation of the project, traditional stoves will be replaced with project stoves that have higher efficiency and the fuelwood consumption and related carbon...</p>
