SUNCOL Chief Executive Officer, Mr Gazmend Luzi said Zambia has a favourable climate for renewable energy exploitation with potential for a futuristic Green Energy solar investment.  He added that investments in solar energy could ameliorate some of the energy challenges that the country is facing and reduce overreliance on hydropower.

He said this when he paid a courtesy call on the First Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Zambia, Honourable Malungo A Chisangano, MP, on Tuesday 31st January, 2023 at Parliament Buildings in Lusaka.
Mr Luiz stated that energy is an important driving force behind economic development and adopting the Integrated Aesthetic Photovoltaic (BIPV) green energy with minimum ecological footprint will not only ensure the country’s energy security but also result in increased investments in the energy sector.

And First Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Zambia, Honourable Malungo A Chisangano, MP said the National Assembly attaches great importance to the energy sector, particularly, renewable energy, due its many benefits.  She also highlighted the need for an enabling legal and policy framework that promotes investments in the renewable energy sector.

She further indicated that the National Assembly of Zambia established the Committees on Energy, Water Development and Tourism to not only provide oversight on the Executive, but also make recommendations to ensure that the energy, water and tourism sectors thrive.

Honourable Chisangano further stated that as a way to demonstrate its efforts to adopt alternative sources of energy, the National Assembly of Zambia has installed solar panels on top of the Library Building.  She hoped that the renewable energy technology by SUNCOL will also benefit rural communities.
