Togo: Indian power developer NTPC in charge of a 300 MW solar project

(Togo First) - India’s National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) was recently chosen by Togo as a consultant on a 300 MW solar project. 

Under this project, solar mini-grids will be developed. These will add to the country’s current four which are respectively located in Takpapieni in the Savanes region (100 Kwc), Kountoum in the Kara region (100 Kwc), Assoukoko in the central region (250 Kwc), and Bavou in the Plateaux region (150 Kwc). 

The project trusted NTPC falls under the government’s electrification strategy which aims to achieve universal power supply by 2030 - by raising renewables’ share in the energy mix from 3% now to 50% over the period. 

Overall, under its electrification strategy, 317 mini-grids should be set up. In parallel, Togo has decided to greatly tap into its solar potential, knowingly through the CIZO project (which involves individual solar kits) and by developing four solar PV plants. Works for the first of these plants were actually recently launched by President Faure Gnassingbe in Blitta.
