Togo: Soon, a law to promote and develop renewable energy would be adopted

(Togo First) - Soon, a bill to promote and develop renewable energies should be passed in Togo, we learnt last Thursday during a conference organized by the Business Climate Cell. The meeting was focused on the “electricity connection” indicator of the Doing Business.

In effect, writing of the draft bill and provisions for the law started in March 2017, with the support of the ECOWAS centre for renewable energy and energy efficiency (ECREEE) and the German cooperation GIZ.

In line with its strategy to provide all Togolese people with renewable energy of quality by 2030, the government is working on putting in place the adequate framework to enable the development of a sustainable and performant power supply system, based on public-private partnerships, both individual and collective, that are capable of fostering economic and social growth.

Though at first, not much interest was shown for renewables in Togo, things have started changing positively and very quickly, since 2017, with the first solar plants of the country launched. One of the major projects related to renewables is CIZO which aims to provide more than two million Togolese with electricity.
