Togo eyes 200MW of clean energy output by 2030

(Togo First) - From 3MW now, Togo seeks to boost its clean energy production to 200MW by 2030. 

This should enable the country to achieve its goal of getting half of its energy mix from renewable sources. And while many solar power projects are underway in this framework, solar energy is not the only resource Togo relies on to achieve its objective. According to public authorities, hydropower is also an option. 

Under the national electrification strategy, Lomé also plans to combine new solutions (mini and off-grid systems) with the traditional grid. 

Let’s recall that as at 2018, according to data from the ministry of mines and energy, 45% of Togolese had access to electricity, with 8% of them living in rural areas.
