About the Project
Originated from the second instalment of the Access Co-Development Facility (ACF) competition in 2016 this solar power plant in Antananarivo will generate 25MW hours of clean electricity to over 100,000 homes and business in Madagascar.
Energy Overview: Madagascar
Madagascar's energy balance shows that about 80% of its overall energy consumption is based on biomass (mainly firewood 68%, charcoal 10% and other biomass 2%), 17% on petrol (transport), 2% on electricity (hydropower and diesel power plants) and 1% on coal. Although Madagascar is endowed with an abundance of natural resources and has the potential to generate 7,800 megawatts (MW) of electric power from hydropower sources, only 2 percent is currently utilized. Access to electricity remains low with about 20% of the total population having access to this form of modern energy. In the rural areas, only about 5% have access to electricity.
