Visit of Lamoussa Salif Kaboré, Burkinabe Minister for Mines, Quarries and Energy, to Andris Piebalgs

74 views

On 23 April 2013, Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, met Lamoussa Salif Kaboré, Burkinabe Minister for Mines, Quarries and Energy, to sign the financing agreement to support the construction of a solar power plant in that country. The project, announced by the end of 2012, will provide between 22 and 33 megawatt peak (MWp) per year, the equivalent of 6% of the country's current electricity production. This will cover the energy consumption of around 400,000 people. The photovoltaic power plant located in Zagtouli, on the outskirts of Ouagadougou, will be operated by the national electricity company Sonabel. 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.
