Strategic technical-economic and environmental feasibility studies for decentralized rural electrification by mini-solar photovoltaic power plants in Togo

Location: Togo , Togo

The overall objective of the project is to support the Togolese Rural Electrification and Renewable Energies Agency (AT2ER) to electrify 317 rural localities by isolated mini-networks based on renewable energies, especially solar (hybrid, solar and storage), thanks to the involvement of private sector who will invest in the construction and operation of mini-grids as part of public-private partnerships (overall anticipated amount of the investment: 300 MEUR).
The objective of the study is twofold:
  • To conduct a precise, comprehensive and up-to-date data collection on the localities targeted by the program in order to best support the preparation of the envisaged Public Private Partnership (PPP) model, as well as the preparation of a competitive tender. It included the creation of a geospatial database (GIS) allowing the visualization of the road/ network/ plots access per locality/ per region/over the whole territory;
  • To provide the technical and economic feasibility of the projects, their indicative costs and their environmental and social impacts, with the aim of informing the government in the preparation of the project, and its implementation, in particular as regards the launch of a competitive tender.
The overall team included 15 experts and the project was completed in 8months
