BGFA Liberia

Electrification rates in Liberia are amongst the lowest in the world: in the capital Monrovia, less than 20% of the population has access to electricity, and only about 3% of the rural population is connected to the grid.

Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa in Liberia

However, the Government of Liberia has set ambitious development goals for electrifying the country, and BGFA’s contribution intends to help reach these goals.

Currently, most donor-funded programmes focus on grid-connected infrastructure or policy reform, and ongoing off-grid initiatives represent a small share of the total needs. BGFA sees high potential to help over 3.3 million people by growing the off-grid energy market in Liberia, bringing a very useful push to an underfunded sector.
