Clean affordable energy

Although Malawi faces some challenges in generating and distributing power nationally; with 10% of the country connected to the main grid, there are tremendous opportunities available to attract and scale up more investments in renewable energy.

As a long-standing partner working across the energy sector, UNDP is working with the Ministry of Energy to increase access to clean, affordable, reliable, and modern energy in Malawi. Under the energy thematic area, UNDP is supporting the development of mini electricity grids to improve access to clean energy in rural areas to catalyze the development of productive energy uses in the targeted regions and electricity for household lighting and cooking.
