In the last national Budget Speech 2022-2023 (ref Measures 194 to 199), Government has set forth its commitment to ensure carbon neutrality in the Industrial Sector by 2030. Within this overarching national goal, as mentioned in the Budget Speech “a renewable energy transition framework is being implemented…”
Pursuant to the Budget Speech, with a view to ensuring effective implementation of the enunciated Measures, a series of consultations with the Mauritius Export Association (MEXA), a key representative of the Industrial Sector and Association of Mauritian Manufacturers (AMM), was held at the level of the Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities.
The outcomes of the exchanges have resulted in the formalisation of the CARBON NEUTRAL INDUSTRIAL SECTOR (CNIS) RENEWABLE ENERGY (RE) SCHEME, which is presented in this information leaflet. In the initial and current phase of the CNIS RE Scheme, the CEB will consider application for renewable energy (RE) projects(solar and wind sources only) from Industrial Customers, which are not operating in the Sugar and Energy Sectors, both in Mauritius and Rodrigues.
A total cumulated capacity of one hundred (100) megawatts (MW) has been earmarked for the present phase of the Scheme in Mauritius. For Rodrigues, the allocation of capacity will be based on the outcomes of the Rodrigues Ile Verte study.
In any case, the maximum capacity of a project, under the Scheme, should not exceed fifteen (15) MW ac.
