Energy poverty is widespread in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the second largest country in Africa, especially in rural areas. In terms of the number of households that have access to electricity, it is less than 20%.

Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

With a widely dispersed population and a national grid that does not reach the majority of the population, there is enormous potential for off-grid solutions for both solar home systems and mini-grids.

Sweden, through the Embassy in Kinshasa, will support the expansion of BGFA to the Democratic Republic of the Congo with SEK 200 million (~ EUR 20 million). The overall aim of the new country programme is to create access to affordable renewable energy solutions for people living in rural and peri-urban areas in the country.
