Cizo Project: Kya Energy selected to build five solar academies in Togo

(Togo First) - Kya Energy, local firm specialized in producing solar-powered generators, will build five solar academies across Togo. The firm recently secured the related contract.

This project falls under the CIZO, an electrification program funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and steered by the Togolese Agency for Rural Electrification and Renewable Energies (AT2ER).

Leveraging its substantial access to solar energy, Togo plans to train some technicians to deliver adequate services under its solar development strategy. In this framework, the solar academies will train and certify local technicians and installers.

Under its contract, Kya Energy will have to create and equip the five solar academies, which are spread across Togo’s five regions. In the long run, the academies will train 3,000 technicians (600 per academy) to off-grid solar energy. The project is expected to last six months.

Let’s recall that Kya Energy Group, led by Yao Azoumah, won last November BOAD’s first prize for best innovative renewable power project. The corresponding reward was CFA30 million, among others, granted by Danish firm ByteBlocs.
