Botswana has a significant solar potential receiving over 3,200 hours of sunshine per year with an average insolation on a flat surface of 21 MJ/m. This rate of irradiation is among the highest in the world. There is also wind potential. Regions with the highest wind potential are located in the South-West and Eastern parts of Botswana, with average wind speeds above 7 m/s, and a wind power density above 200 W/m2 . In the energy sector the National Development Plan 11 in Botswana focuses on increasing self-reliance on the country’s energy resources.Hence, Botswana is looking to diversify and support the development of the economy by securing competitive, cost-reflective and sustainable electricity prices for industry, services and households.
