France to inject €115mln in two energy projects in Togo 

(Togo First) - Resulting from the recent visit of President Gnassingbé to Emmanuel Macron, President of France, four cooperation agreements were inked between the two nations. Two of them are aimed at boosting access to renewables in Togo. 

Under the first agreement, a private-public partnership, Sunna Design, will install 50,000 solar light poles in the West African country. According to the Togolese presidency, the project, which will cost €40 million (CFA26.2 billion), will be financed by France. 

This French company designs and makes innovative solar-powered lighting products. 

The second agreement will be supported by the French Development Agency (AFD). The institution has committed to invest €75 million or CFA49 billion in the PERECUT electrification project that covers 50 communities.

These projects are good news for the government as it plans to fully electrify Togo by 2030, and get 50% of its electricity output from renewables.
