Djibouti: Ministers back solar and biomass projects
The council of ministers on 12 May gave initial backing to preliminary assessments of a 30MW solar PV project in Grand Bara and 40MW biomass project in Damerjog. Engie is developing the Grand Bara solar project on an unsolicited basis, having signed a memorandum of understanding with the government for the project in May 2019. The cabinet approved the conclusions of a preliminary evaluation of the project, saying that it would reduce reliance on imported power while creating jobs and contributing to economic and social development.
