Study for the design and assistance to the beginning of a project to produce renewable energy in Garamba park

The objective of this study aimed at improving the living conditions of the rural populations in the buffer zones around Garamba Park. Initially it was expected to be realized through the construction of several hydropower plants providing access to reliable, efficient, affordable and sustainable energy services. However, the study that consists of two main phases: a pre-feasibility study for the identification of two potential sites, followed by a detailed technical study including the technical aspects and the institutional set-up of the power plant projects found that the hydro resources estimated earlier by the SE4ALL study were less than initially thought. As a result, alternative approaches based on solar energy whad to be explored as well.
