EDF and IFC Sign Agreement to Promote Rural Electrification in Africa and Globally

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, and EDF have signed an agreement to cooperate in developing off-grid electrification solutions in emerging markets, with the ultimate goal of serving up to half a million people living in rural areas, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. The agreement is focused primarily on sub-Saharan Africa, with a pilot project under development in Benin. The first phase of this pilot is intended to provide electricity to 25,000 people, using hybrid solar-diesel networks and two biomassfired power plants. The project may be replicated in other parts of Benin, as well as other countries such as Mozambique, Tanzania and Myanmar. In signing this agreement, EDF and IFC expect to combine their expertise in order to develop cutting edge, affordable and sustainable solutions for rural electrification. The scope of cooperation between EDF and IFC includes seeking sources of financing to support potential projects, sharing sector expertise between the two institutions, and where necessary, exploring sustainable co-investment opportunities, for example thorough the creation of a joint investment vehicle to finance eligible projects in the target countries.
