Stand-alone solar kits

In 2020, EDF partnered with upOwa and Solkamtech, two Cameroonian companies specialising in the distribution of stand-alone solar kits, to market 300 solar systems manufactured by the German company Solarworx. The aim of this pilot project is to promote sustainable energy to households and services outside the distribution network.

Mini grid: technical solutions to improve access to energy for populations not connected to the electricity grid

Today, nearly 45% of the population has no access to electricity in Cameroon. One of EDF's objectives is to support the government and local authorities in their electrification efforts.

Using its technical know-how, EDF plans to develop, build and operate various types of renewable energy production plants outside the electricity grid (solar, biogas, hydroelectric).
