In a country where most of the electricity is imported from Ghana and Nigeria, the Togolese government realised that the key to ensure a sustainable economic and social growth was investing in the access to electricity. This project has become a reality, and since 2018 the country started promoting the development of renewable energy, mainly photovoltaic, solar thermal and hydroelectric.
Within this context, EFISUN was involved in one of Togo’s biggest photovoltaic plants, with a total area of more than 100 hectares and a foreseen production of 2500 MWh per year. EFISUN’s team contributed to the successful development of this PV plant by taking responsibility as technical advisor and site manager; and providing engineering solutions with the support of our senior professionals.
Our project was part of an ambitious governmental plan, as in 2018 Togo had an electrification rate of around 45%, and this initiative aimed to achieve 50% electrification by 2020 and universal access by 2030. The completion of the PV plant not only helped Togo to become an energetically independent country, but it also contributed to increasing the amount and availability of clean energy.
