Program to electrify several hospitals in Several Africa countries

A total of five electricity suppliers, namely Nuru International, Aress, Havenhill Synergy Limited, WindGen Power USA, and Zhyphen, have been selected to carry out a pilot program to electrify several hospitals in DR Congo, Benin, Nigeria and Mozambique, through the installation of photovoltaic systems in the earmarked health centers. 3

The aforementioned companies were selected based on their experience in the implementation of electrification projects through solar photovoltaic energy, their ability to carry out the work within 3 to 10 months after receipt of funds, and their ability to obtain more than 50% of the funds necessary for the realization of the project from other financial partners, by the developer of the program, Shell Foundation and Odyssey Energy Solutions’ Powering Health platform, following a call for tenders launched on March 2021.
