Togo to build 240 km high-voltage lines

(Togo First) - Togo plans to install 240 km of high-voltage lines and 23 distribution substations in the coming years. The information was revealed during the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) by Adjadi Shegun Bakary (pictured), Energy Advisor to the Togolese Head of State Faure Gnassingbé.

The project is expected to boost the electrification rate in the country, which according to the energy minister, Marc Ably-Bidamon, reached 45% in 2018. The government wants to achieve 75% of electricity coverage by 2025 and universal energy coverage by 2030.

In addition to the 240 km high-voltage lines, Togo is mainly focusing on the promotion of solar energy and hydroelectricity with the objective of achieving 50% share of renewable energy in its energy mix. The country also wants to become a pioneer in renewable energy in Africa by 2030.
