Democratic Republic of the Congo: Evaluating potential mini-grid projects in North and South Kivu

A five-month study designed to evaluate the potential installation of mini power grids in the northeast region of Congo.

IMC has been appointed by USAID to help the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to achieve its goal of reforming the country’s power sector.

IMC is working with Perez to prepare a study on potential mini-grid projects in the provinces of North and South Kivu.

The DRC has decided to rely heavily on private sector investment to expand electricity access and drive economic growth. Therefore, IMC will assess the various potential stakeholders that could be interested in engaging in a public-private partnership with the Congolese government.

IMC will also conduct an initial indication of an economic analysis of such engagement.

The USAID-funded study will encompass generation, distribution, transmission or sub-transmission. It will also examine power supply options such as imports from Rwanda, local hydropower and solar resources.
