Signature of the financing agreement to support the construction of a solar power plant in Burkina Faso

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, received Lamoussa Salif Kaboré, Burkinabe Minister for Mines, Quarries and Energy, in the framework of the signature ceremony of the financing agreement to support the construction of a solar power plant in Zagtouli, on the outskirts of Ouagadougou.
The EU will provide 40% of the funds (€25 million) for the construction of which will be the largest solar plant in sub-Saharan Africa. During the meeting with Lamoussa Salif Kaboré, Andris Piebalgs highlighted this project as an example of the good cooperation between the EU and partner countries in the field of energy, and the benefits of co-financing by banking entities. This project is a step forward towards achieving the EU target within the UN initiative 'Sustainable Energy For All' (SE4ALL), of helping developing countries to provide access to sustainable energy services to 500 million people by 2030.
