The solar project represents an important development in Chad, but particularly for Abéché city with a population of over 80,000 people, none of whom are connected to the national grid.

With electricity predominantly produced from diesel-powered generators, the solar project will trigger a new era of sustainable access, while enabling a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Having developed similar projects in Senegal, Morocco and Zambia, among other African countries, InnoVent is well positioned to drive solar project developments in Chad.

Currently, the north-central African country has one of the lowest electricity access rates worldwide but with renewable energy developments now gaining momentum, the government aims to transform the power sector on the back of clean energy projects, such as InnoVent’s.
