A Roadmap for Energy Access in Displacement Settings: Rwanda

This report presents the status of sustainable energy access for refugee and host community households, businesses and community facilities in displacement settings in Rwanda. It provides an overview of the stakeholders working towards SDG 7, and highlights opportunities for high-impact projects to support increased access to sustainable energy for displaced people and host communities.  

This report – the third in the READS Programme’s first phase – was written in partnership with Practical Action and is based in large part on input received during a stakeholder engagement workshop that was held in Kigali earlier this year. 

Rwanda offers high potential to improve access to sustainable energy in displacement settings and the country offers a supportive framework for both displaced people and sustainable energy. Previous and ongoing projects which support market-based approaches – from the wide-reaching RE4R Project to smaller, more focused interventions for electricity access and clean cooking – provide a network of stakeholders and lay the foundations to scale up promising work throughout Rwanda.
