Liberia: ADFD funding for mini-hydro scheme
The Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) have announced an $8m loan for a 2.1MW run-of-river hydropower plant in River Gee County. The project, to be developed by the Rural and Renewable Energy Agency, will benefit over 30,000 people through providing a clean, reliable and affordable source of energy to households, schools, health facilities and small businesses. The project will directly contribute to achieving the national rural electrification goal of 35% by 2030, Irena said.
