Solar projects earmarked to support N’Djamena surrounds in Chad

Argentine conglomerate Alcaal Group has signed an MoU with Chad’s Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Energy for a 200MW solar PV with a battery storage component located near the capital city of N’Djamena.

The company had visited Chad at the beginning of August to discuss the prospects for investing in the country’s agribusiness and renewable energies, Idriss Déby, the central African country’s president, announced.

The agreement concerns feasibility studies for the construction, operation and maintenance of a solar photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of up to 200MW with storage on the outskirts of N’Djamena.

In early July, the United Nations Development Programme launched the “Sun Health” project in the country to address the lack of a reliable source of energy in Chad. Only 6.4% of the Chadian population has access to reliable electricity.
