Dubai-based AMEA Power LLC has secured a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for a 25-megawatt peak (MWp) solar project in Uganda in collaboration with Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited (UETCL).
Additionally, AMEA Power has entered into an implementation agreement (IA) with Uganda’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD).
This marks AMEA Power’s first venture in an East African Community (EAC) country and paves the way for potential expansion into wind and battery energy storage projects in Uganda and the broader EAC Region.
AMEA Power currently manages a portfolio of over 1.2 gigawatts (GW) of clean energy projects across various stages of development and operation in countries such as Burkina Faso, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, and Togo. In East Africa, the company is actively involved in Kenya, Tanzania, Djibouti, and now Uganda.
