Case Summary

The objective of this project is to leverage Cote d’Ivoire’s agricultural waste to create clean electricity, while supporting agricultural livelihoods and expanding energy access. The project has four principal objectives:

1) constructing five power stations leveraging Groupe SIFCa's biomass potential;

2) electricity production at the 150 to 200 MW scale over the next 10 years (1,000 to 1,500 GWh per year);

3) commercialization of energy produced in Cote d'Ivoire (via IPP); and

4) launching an operational stage of the project in 2015.
