- Masdar to develop master plan to develop 70 megawatt solar plant in Ivory Coast
Ivory Coast has signed an agreement with UAE renewable energy company Masdar to explore the development of a 50-70 megawatt (MW) solar power plant.
“Masdar and the Ivorian Ministry of Mining, Petroleum and Energy will explore the joint development of solar photovoltaic plants in Côte d’Ivoire [Ivory Coast], starting with a first 50-70-megawatt (MW) plant,” the company said in a statement.
“With Africa’s massive projected development and growth, and low current clean energy penetration levels, we see enormous potential for the renewable energy sector across the continent,” said Masdar chief executive Mohamed Al Ramahi.
Ivory Coast has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 32% and increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix to over 40% by 2030.
