Solar Plan in Burkina Faso

IED participates in the implementation of the Burkina Faso Solar Plan

In Burkina, IED is supporting SONABEL for the development and integration of large scale photovoltaic production on the national grid. In particular, IED carries out feasibility studies leading to the selection of EPC companies for the realization of:
- A photovoltaic power plant of about 40 MWp near Ouagadougou
- A 90 kV high-voltage line to connect this plant to the transmission grid
- Several regional photovoltaic plants connected to the grid

- A multi-MW pilot storage system to facilitate the integration of a significant share of photovoltaic production on the national grid.
This work is financed by the French Development Agency, AFD.
