The FPM for Financial Inclusion in DR Congo organised last Friday a webinar entitled "Financing renewable energy in the DRC : what business model and evaluation methods for financial institutions ?" Three experts on the subject were invited to give their point of view during the webinar and Samuel Martin, MARGE Managing Director and energy access expert who lived in the DRC for 3 years, moderated the session.
MARGE conducted a field mission in Bangui in June as part of the PURACEL project. This feasibility study aims to design a program to improve access to energy in households and public buildings. MARGE’s experts were able to coordinate field surveys of households in several areas of the capital to identify their energy needs and better understand the issues related to the electrification of these households. They were also able to identify and survey the various public buildings to be included in the study (schools, hospitals, administrations, ...) and meet with the various key actors of the project.
For the past two years, MARGE has been supporting the Garamba National Park (GNP) in the DRC in a solar energy program that has two main components: the promotion of solar kits and the construction and operation of 3 hybrid solar mini-grids. On June 9, the first two mini-grids built in the towns of Tadu and Faradje were inaugurated. These two localities of several tens of thousands of inhabitants each, border the National Park.
