Feasibility and design of rooftop PV installations on industrial sites in Burundi

September 22, 2016

Country:  Burundi
Period:  Ongoing


3E is currently engaged in a feasibility study for rooftop solar PV installations on industrial sites in Burundi.

The objective of the project is to carry out a techno-economic feasibility study for roof-top or ground-mounted solar photovoltaic systems on 45 company/factory sites in Burundi (most of them located in Bujumbura). The feasibility study encompasses the following stages: data collection, modelling of irradiation data at the different company sites in particular taking the site visit data into account, PV system design and techno-economic assessment, review of support schemes and regulatory frameworks. The client of this project is the Burundi Association of Manufacturers (AIB) with support from TradeMark East Africa (TMEA).

Throughout the project 3E experts will work in close cooperation with the client and therefore help the technical team appointed by AIB with all basic knowledge needed in the field of the development of the PV system.
