The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the largest country in Central Africa with an estimated population of 81 million. Less than 8 million homes and businesses have access to electricity.
NRECA International is working with the l’Unité de Coordination et de Management des projets du ministère de l’énergie et ressources hydrauliques (UCM), the coordinating department of the DRC’s Ministry of Energy and Hydrological Resources, to implement the National Geospatial Least Cost Electrification Plan. This project will evaluate how to cost effectively serve 100 urban and semi-urban agglomerations with reliable and affordable power supply. The team will develop a geospatial platform to evaluate how large isolated renewable energy powered grids and transmission /distribution infrastructure can be extended to connect population and business centers within these key cities to further spur economic growth.
In addition, the team also is supporting Moyi Power, to perform a feasibility study of three large mini grids. The outcome of the study will provide Moyi Power with a strategy to develop and serve the electricity needs of these key communities
