Shining a light on opportunity
Accelerating deployment of private-sector-led urban and peri-urban solar metro grids to realize renewable energy potential
DRC, with the world’s second-largest unelectrified population poses unique challenges due to its vast expanse and limited infrastructure. GEAPP, in collaboration with Alliance partners plans to electrify 100 urban areas via 100 mini grids by 2040 and provide an investment roadmap to harness the country’s vast solar and hydro potential in service of more than 74 million Congolese people currently living without electricity access.
