In Mauritius, a 16 MW grid-tied solar power plant aimed at reducing coal and oil consumption was commissioned last week, while in the Maldives the Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program (SREP) is supporting the archipelago’s efforts to committ to clean energies through a 5 MW solar tender.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) have announced that two solar PV projects – one located in Mauritius and the other in Rwanda – will be receiving $25 million in concessional loans from ADFD, one in Mauritius and one in Rwanda.
A total of 130 solar panels coupled with batteries will fully substitute diesel-based power generation for the needs of Ile des Deux Cocos, an island resort of LUX* Resorts & Hotels, located in off-grid south-east Mauritius.
Around 2 MW of PV systems up to 5 kW are expected to be installed in the archipelago through the new scheme.
