In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNIDO  through the TSE4ALLM project made an open call to Mozambican entities, organizations, companies and consortiums of companies for joint the implementation of several investment projects that involve the development of renewable energy systems of up to 20 kW of installed capacity (for solar systems) and up to 50m3 of biogas production (for biomass systems). 
The call was linked to technology demonstration for Small and Medium size Renewable Energy Projects in the areas of; conservation and agro-processing, solar water pumping and irrigation, and waste to energy. The grant will cover 50% of the total investment and selected project beneficiaries will be required to co-finance the remaining 50% in cash or in kind. Proposals submitted consisted of a single project on one site or a bundle of projects from different sites for as long as the overall conditions in terms of average level of ratio of capital cost to installed capacity is generally observed.

“Agriculture is the backbone for Mozambique’s development, it is thus important that farmers have access to funds to develop their agricultural activities” Eng. António Saíde, FUNAE Chief Executive Officer Although agriculture and small or medium-sized enterprises are important to the Mozambican economy, there is enough evidence that it is not possible to process local raw materials, diversify the economy, or increase the competitiveness without access to modern environmentally adequate energy at an affordable cost.
