Access to Energy in Rwanda – Impact evaluation of activities supported by the Dutch Promoting Renewable Energy Programme

In 2008 the Promoting Renewable Energy
Programme was launched in order to promote
access to of renewable energy in developing
countries and to mitigate the negative effects of
the use of energy on the climate.

Between 2010 and 2014, the impact was
evaluated of the roll-out of the electricity grid,
the national biogas programme, the marketing of
personal solar lighting, and a project aimed at
strengthening the energy authority in Rwanda.
To that end, both quantitative and qualitative
research methods were applied.

The renewable energy interventions were
relevant to the objectives of both the
Government of Rwanda and the Promoting
Renewable Energy Programme. The electricity
roll-out programme has been efficient; other
activities were less efficient. The electricity
roll-out programme has also been effective in
providing access to energy. Impacts on household
income and expenditure are modest, while
welfare impact is most pronounced in the case of
grid-supplied electricity. A strict application of
the market approach for small energy interventions
is at odds with aspiring to a significant
reduction of CO2 emissions.
