Togo to achieve universal access to electricity, by 2030

(Togo First) - Over the next ten years, Togo aims to reach 100% electricity coverage and achieve the universal service access latest by 2030.

To this end, the country plans to leverage financing mechanisms particularly the Public-Private Partnership (PPP). It also sets support mechanisms aimed at connecting communities living without electricity. In this framework, Lomé will host next June 27-28, a round table focused on the implementation of a new national electrification strategy. This reflects authorities’ will to address power issue within the country.

The event will see the participation of World Bank, International Finance Corporation and GIZ as well as other international lenders and investors. The goal is to showcase the investment opportunities offered by this new strategy. The latter promotes clean energy in a context where Togo wishes to bring to 50% renewable energy's share in its energy mix, by 2030.
