IED Invest have officially launched the building of its first small hydropower project in Cameroon, on Mbakaou-Carrière site.
Offering a capacity of 1.4 MW and an annual output of 11.2 GW / h, this project will increase the quality of electricity services in the Adamawa region, particularly in terms of stability of supply, and participate to the national rural electrification policy by increasing the number of subscribers, while allowing the creation of sustainable local jobs and the reduction of CO2 emissions.

This project is a good sample of international public / private partnerships, associating IED group, Cameroonian’s Ministry of Energy, Rural Electrification Agency, ARSEL (regulation), ENEO company (distribution ), with financial support of European Union and pre-financing by BGFI bank. In addition, French Global Environment Fund, IED Invest's historic partner in Asia, is also supporting this project.

Commissioning of the Mbakaou-Carrière hydropower plant is planned for the end of 2020-first quarter of 2021.
