South Korea funds solar energy project in Mozambique

11 March 2014

A group of researchers from South Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology travelled to Mozambique to study the economic feasibility of a solar power project, the South Korean international cooperation agency (Koica) said Monday.

According to a statement from Koica, the group of researchers from the institute was in Mozambique over the last two weeks to assess Mozambique’s needs in terms of solar energy and to check the conditions in place to carry out the project.

During their stay in Mozambique the members of the group had working meetings about the project, which will be installed in the Chibuto district in the coastal province of Gaza, in partnership with the Energy Ministry and Eduardo Mondlane University.

In the statement Koica said that in the future a second group of researchers would visit Mozambique to identify the best technology to use for this solar power project. (macauhub)
