Togo adopts new legal framework to regulate clean power production, distribution and commercialization

(Togo First) - Togo has adopted a new legal framework for its clean power sector. This was during the recent council of ministers held last Wednesday.

In effect, under the third and fourth decrees passed at the council, Togo wants to “tackle the various challenges related to power insufficiency”, increase power supply and reduce power dependency by diversifying sources of energy. These require an “appropriate legal framework”.

Therefore, “production, transport, distribution and commercialization of power generated from renewable sources”, will now be “subjected to a concession agreement”. Similarly, production thresholds will be set under the “various legal regimes regulating clean power projects”.

According to the ministry of mines and energy, Togo’s electrification rate rose to 45% in 2018, spurred by new connections by Compagnie Energie Electrique du Togo (CEET), and BBOXX operations which led to the electrification (with domestic solar units) of close to 10,000 homes.
