In March 2016, it was inaugurated a Hybrid PV-Diesel power plant in Bilgo, rural community situated in the region of Pabre. This power plant is contributing to improve the electricity access rate in the country. The hybrid power plant in Bilgo works with a photovoltaic-genset system of 30KWp / 77KVA. The project was financially supported by the European Union within the framework of the project “Flexy Energy” and also with the financial contribution from SONABEL under the initiative and coordination of 2iE.
ECOWAS OBSERVATORY FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Accurate knowledge on existing and planned resources are vital for strategic planning and development. The non-availability of reliable and updated energy information poses a major constraint for policy makers, investors and project developers in the ECOWAS energy sector. For investors and other stakeholders, it is difficult to identify cooperation partners due to the absence of specialised platforms for exchange of information and experiences. Given this situation, significant opportunities are lost for a sustainable energy development. The ECOWREX connects people and ideas, building powerful partnerships with the latest technologies to provide up to date, timely and quality information for powering a cleaner and developed energy sector.
