(Business in Cameroon) - Designed since 2013 by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), the master plan for the development of renewable energies was officially delivered to Cameroon on December 7, 2017, in Yaoundé.

Based on researches conducted at eleven sites in the Central, Eastern, North Western, South Western and Southern regions, the plan reveals that Cameroon has the potential to triple its power generating capacity by 2030. A claim backed by Yeon Je Ho, manager of KOICA in Cameroon.

Indeed, Cameroon is the second country with the greatest hydroelectric potential in Africa after the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, this country whose wind, solar and biomass energies represent barely 1% of its energy mix, barely has 1,300 MW installed.
