Project Information:

Poor access to electricity is recognised as a binding constraint to long-term economic growth in Sierra Leone. The country is currently experiencing a net deficit of power and is in desperate need of new power sources. The Ministry of Energy, Sierra Leone has developed an Energy Sector Roadmap and action plan with initiatives to increase energy access through technical and non-technical interventions. Part of the roadmap strategy is to incorporate Sierra Leone’s great Renewable Energy resources to provide security of electricity supply to rural communities and to boost the economy. To help address the energy infrastructure needs, UNOPS on behalf of the Ministry of Energy, is implementing projects to increase renewable energy based mini-grid electricity accessibility to households, businesses, health centers, schools public services etc. and enhance economic growth in underserved rural communities.

The project aims to expand energy access to remote villages, leading to improved development outcomes in health, education and productive use to beneficiary communities. The project is in support of the Ministry’s objective of increasing access to electricity in rural communities, exploring a variety of alternative sources of renewable energy. It is envisioned that the project will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 7 addressing multiple development initiatives.
