  • World Bank targets 150,000 Kenyan rural households with clean cook stoves

    Some 150,000 homes in Kenyan rural villages will be supplied with efficient cook stoves powered by clean fuels in a programme funded by the World Bank and European Union. The targeted households are those located in marginalised areas, largely in northern Kenya and the coast. They include Turkana, Marsabit, Mandera, Wajir, Isiolo, Tana River, Kilifi, Kwale and Garissa. The mass cookstove distribution drive is part of a wider programme that aims to roll out clean energy solutions to marginalised communities under the Kenya off-grid solar access project (K-OSAP). The scheme also includes construction of solar powered mini grids to be implemented by the Energy ministry, Kenya Power and Rural Electrification Authority (REA). The World Bank, through its project appraisal document, indicates that some 150,000 cookstoves will be distributed to poor homes over the next four years to 2022.

    S.Africa: 100MW Karoshoek Solar One project goes live

    The Karoshoek Solar One project went live in Upington on 30 November adding an additional 100MW of clean power to the national grid. This project is the latest success of Government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). With the current pressure on supply, this latest addition to the grid is especially welcomed. Karoshoek is a concentrated solar project harvesting the sun’s energy through a series of concave mirrors, and using this energy to heat High Temperature Fluid, which then drives a steam turbine to convert the energy into electricity. This project also has the capacity to store energy in enormous tanks containing molten salt, and can, therefore, continue to supply the grid during the evening peak, after the sun has set. The project is located 30 km east of Upington, which has high levels of solar radiation as well as easy access to the national grid. The project was originated by Pancho Ndebele of Emvelo Holdings (Emvelo) and co-developed by Emvelo, and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and Cobra (a Spanish company responsible for the construction of the plant) who respectively hold 15%, 20% and 20% shareholding in the project.

    12 Sub-Saharan African Countries With The Best Access To Electricity


    Many of us take access to electricity for granted, but only two out of every five people in Africa have decent access to energy to power lights and other electrical appliances throughout the day. Around 625 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa have no access to electricity, according to the International Energy Agency. North Africa is not considered within this discussion, as countries such as Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia have 100 percent energy access across the board, but for parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, this is not the case. We take a look at 12 Sub-Saharan African countries with the best access to electricity. We take a look at 12 Sub-Saharan African countries with the best access to electricity. A dramatic improvement in power access has seen the Comoros rise up in this list from 1990, when the percentage was around 42, to about 69.3 percent in 2012. Another of the former Portuguese colonies on this list, Cape Verde is able to provide over 70 percent of their people with energy from the electricity grid. This is a solid improvement compared to 58.2 percent in 1990.

    TUNISIA: Tunis welcomes first electric bus provided by BYD

    The Tunisian government presented a 100% electric bus on November 19, 2018 in Tunis the capital. The eco-friendly vehicle, imported from China, is integrated into the capital's public transport network for a six-month experimental period. The operation is the starting point of the project to save energy and preserve the environment in the Tunisian transport sector. The bus, with a capacity of 90 passengers, 28 of whom are seated, has a range of 250 kilometres and is equipped with an ultra-fast charger that can recharge the battery in just 3 hours. This charging device can easily be installed in parks or terminals, knowing that in just half an hour, a range of 100 kilometres can be achieved. The cost of such a vehicle ranges from $180,000 to $400,000. The manufacturers of the bus estimate that, given the current surge in oil barrels, the vehicle can be depreciated in five years, and that it has a lifespan of 10 to 12 years. The presentation of this technology reflects the desire of public authorities to promote electric mobility. It is in this spirit that the Al Badr Group, partner and official distributor of BYD in Tunisia, intends to enter into an industrial partnership for the assembly of electric vehicles.

    World’s First, Solar-Hydrogen Powered Mini-Grids in Uganda

    Today, the Belgian renewable energy company Tiger Power signs an agreement with the Ugandan government to power 3000 rural households and businesses in Kyenjojo. Currently, three communities lack access to electricity. By mid-2019 this will change. Tiger Power is building a solar power plant in each village backed up by on-site hydrogen production and storage. The technology keeps a black-out from happening and supplies electricity to the community, pollution- and fuel free. The three villages in Kyenjojo will be powered by Tiger Power’s propriety system “Sunfold” which is a complete solar power solution, including a storage system (battery/hydrogen). This allows households to watch television, schools to open early and later in the day, health centres to provide round the clock services and the miller to continue to work during evening hours. “We are very proud to bring this solar-hydrogen technology to Uganda. When the Sunfold generates insufficient power during cloudy days, the hydrogen generator takes over. Thanks to our technology, the Kyenjojo communities will never experience any black-out”, explains Jonathan Lambregs, Tiger Power’s Business Development Manager East Africa.

    MALI: Atlantic Bank joins forces with AER for off grid in 300 villages

    Atlantic Bank commonly known by its French name Groupe Banque Atlantique, a subsidiary of the Moroccan group Banque Centrale Populaire, recently signed an agreement with the Malian Renewable Energy Agency (AER). It concerns the supply of solar mini grids to the inhabitants of 300 villages in Mali. The rate of access to electricity was 38% in Mali in 2016. An even lower percentage, and much worse in rural areas still not served by the national electricity network. The Malian government wants to remedy the situation by using off-grid solar energy. A solution for rural territories very popular in several African countries. This is why the State has initiated the Solar Photovoltaic Electrification Programme in rural areas. In this context, Banque Atlantique, a subsidiary of the Moroccan group Banque Centrale Populaire, has just signed a partnership agreement with the Malian Renewable Energy Agency (AER). The aim is to provide electricity to the inhabitants of 300 villages in this West African country. In each rural area, villagers should benefit from mini-grids equipped with batteries that allow them to listen to the radio, charge mobile phones and light up in the evening.

    EGYPT: 2 GW of solar power soon, and country achieves COP21 goals

    The French energy company Voltalia announced on November 8, 2018, the launch of construction work on a 32 MW solar power plant in Egypt. The electricity produced by the Ra Solar power plant will bring Egypt's installed solar capacity to 2 GW. The country will thus achieve its objectives with regard to COP 21. The announcement made by Voltalia, certainly sparked a relief within the Egyptian government. Present at the Africa Investments Forum (an event dedicated to business opportunities on the African continent in different fields) held in Paris on November 8, 2018, Voltalia declared that it had begun construction work on Ra Solar: a 32-megawatt solar power plant located in the Ben Ban complex (the largest solar complex in the world, with a capacity of 1.8 gigawatts), in Aswan, a city located 843 kilometres from Cairo. The commissioning of the Ra Solar power plant, scheduled for the second half of 2019, will contribute to the achievement of the objectives that Egypt set itself in 2015, within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, COP21. Indeed, Egypt’s strategic energy plan aims to develop 4.3 gigawatts of renewable capacity, including 2 gigawatts of solar photovoltaic capacity. In addition, increasing the production capacity of the Ben Ban solar complex will prevent the emission of two million tonnes of CO2 per year, while improving access to cheap, green energy in Egypt.
