"The goal is clearly to break free of the tyranny of a single fuel source, which was the case with oil for several decades."
HARDLY-HIT BY THE OIL-PRICE HIKE IN 2008, CONSTRAINED BY AN INADEQUATE ENERGY SYSTEM, SENEGAL HAS BEGUN TO EXPLOIT ITS IMMENSE RENEWABLE ENERGY POTENTIAL, WITH SOLAR POWER IN THE LEAD. THE NUMBER OF PROJECTS HAS BEEN RISING FOR TWO YEARS NOW, A PRIME EXAMPLE BEING SENERGY, THE COUNTRY'S FIRST PRIVATE SOLAR POWER PLANT AND THE LARGEST ONE IN WEST AFRICA, 80% FINANCED BY PROPARCO. THE AIM IS TO HELP BOOST SENEGAL’S ENERGY SECURITY AND FACILITATE THE TRANSITION TO LOW-CARBON DEVELOPMENT.
