Abidjan – 22.11.2018
“Our country has an ambitious agenda to scale up cost-effective and reliable renewable energy. We are pleased to work with IFC to engage the private sector to help achieve our targets” recently quoted Thierry Tanoh, Minister of Oil, Energy and Renewable Energy Development of Côte d’Ivoire. With the implementation of effective government policies, achieving the renewable energy target can generate USD 9 billion in investment opportunities in the sector by 2030 according to Alzbeta Klein, Director and Head of Climate Business of the International Finance Corporation. Côte d’Ivoire has indeed announced it wants renewable energy to represent 42 percent of the country’s energy mix by 2030.
Euroconvention Global is pleased to announce the next of its West-African series of events: RENPOWER Côte d’Ivoire 2018 – The Renewable Energy & Power Infrastructure Investors Conference. We will bring together tens of representatives from development banks, investment funds, project developers, IPPs, EPCs and other RES stakeholders. The event is scheduled to be held in Abidjan on November 22, 2018. English and French simultaneous translation will be available.
Background – Since 2011, the Government of Côte d’Ivoire, together with donors, has invested approximately USD 6.6 billion in infrastructure to increase production of electricity. It has adopted an ambitious National Development Plan that calls for investing USD 20 billion by 2030 and adding 150 megawatts to the grid every year until 2020. Approximately 26 percent of Ivoirians do not have access to electricity – as urban electrification is pervasive and most urban-dwellers have access to generally uninterrupted electricity, the government is increasingly focusing on rural electrification and off-grid solutions. Côte d’Ivoire also regularly exports electricity to its neighbors, aiming at becoming a larger exporter of energy to the region.
Increasing electricity production capacity is a key part of the government’s energy policy which plans to boost hydropower capacity, biomass and solar power projects as well as other technologies. Promoting private sector initiatives is key to reach the ambition of diversifying the energy mix and meeting future demand.
