The objective of FASER is to stimulate the value and distribution chain of modern, renewable energy (RE) technology markets in Mozambique and promote a broader adoption of such technologies across the country, thereby contributing to the efforts of the Mozambican government to achieve the ambitious target of providing universal energy access by 2030. The Fund emphatically promotes the dissemination of high-quality energy technologies into off-grid peri-urban and rural areas, as well as an increased uptake of these technologies by women. It furthermore aims at assisting particularly vulnerable populations to have access to reliable and modern energy.

Promoting the adoption of technical norms and standards of quality, safety and efficiency of renewable energy technologies by exclusively supporting certified and proven products
