Cameroon: Bangangté district hospital to soon be powered by solar energy

(Business in Cameroon) - The project aiming at building a mini solar grid currently being developed at the Bagangté district hospital, Cameroon’s western region, plans to make it possible for the hospital to be 80% power sufficient.

This investment is part of the “Women and Sustainable Energy” project which benefits from the technical and financial partnership of Association Internationale des Maires Francophones (Aimf), Veolia Foundation and Agence de l'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie (Ademe).

Led in Cameroon by a network of women mayors headed by Célestine Keutcha Courtes, Mayor of Bagangté, who was recently appointed Minister of Housing and Urban Development, the “Women and Sustainable Energy” project also implements a solar electrification project in five Cameroonian municipalities run by women. These include Mayo-Oulo (northern region); Mbengwi (northwest region); Angossas (eastern region); Afanloum in the central region; and Mintom in the southern region.

According to our sources, the first two municipalities will respectively receive 40 and 30 solar streetlights, while three mini photovoltaic power plants will be built in the last three municipalities. Total investment amounted to about XAF150 million.

Let’s note that solar, wind and biomass are the minor players in Cameroonian energy mix, in which they officially represent only 1%.
