Energy: Regional interconnection project led by West African Power Pool to be completed in 2023

(Togo First) - The regional energy interconnection project, which is steered by the West African Energy Pool (WAPP), is expected to be completed in 2023. 

The 600 MW project costs $567 million and aims at supplying reliable, cheap electricity to the 14 of the 15 ECOWAS member States. It includes a rural component, which will be carried out in Burkina Faso and Niger, and another component under which coastal countries (Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire) should be connected. Apart from these, the project should run along the Ghana-Burkina Faso-Mali axis. 

The regional project is financed by Nigeria (0.9%), the French Development Agency (6%), the African Development Bank (20.5%), and the World Bank (72.6%).
