BGFA Burkina Faso

Current electrification rates in Burkina Faso are low: 75% of the total population (roughly 15 million people) and 90% of the population in rural areas (roughly 14 million people) do not have access to electricity.

The growing demand for energy services and the strong political will towards rural electrification create substantial opportunities for the development of a vibrant, decentralised, clean energy market.

Research shows that 47% of the population of Burkina Faso would optimally be served by clean hybrid mini-grids and stand-alone solar systems. These have a large potential in the country and represent a central pillar for the upcoming BGFA funding window.
