Programme of support for green mini-grids based on renewable energy in Niger (2018)
The objective of this project was to support Niger's Ministry of Energy to prepare the policy and regulations for mini-grids powered by renewable energy (green mini-grids) and to help it set up an enabling framework to promote the development of these grids focused on the market.
The creation of a conducive policy and regulatory framework that aims to take account of all aspects of the development of green mini-grids is a prerequisite for the expected boom in these isolated networks. This should increase access to energy in rural zones at a reasonable investment level for the Government of Niger and its financial partners through the involvement of the private sector, as well as increase the share of renewable energy in the country's mix.
