In April 2020, IED and its local partner VSI Africa began work on the "Prefeasibility Study for Electrification by Renewable Energy Sources, in 21 provinces locations that are unserved or under-supplied with electricity".

This study is sponsored by UCM, The Ministry of Energy's Project Coordination and Management Unit, and is funded by the World Bank.

A first step is to estimate the electricity demand of each city for the next few years. On this basis, IED will propose suitable solutions for renewable production (solar and hydroelectric in particular) and electricity distribution. The economic, financial, environmental and social aspects of the projects will also be analysed.
