EDP, a Portuguese energy group whose biggest shareholder is China Three Gorges, will finance nine projects promoting access to renewable energy in Mozambique, Nigeria, Angola, and Malawi.
In a statement, EDP says that the total funding of one million euros, guaranteed by the A2E Fund (Access to Energy), will have a “direct impact on priority areas such as health, agriculture, education or access to clean water” in these countries “involving more than one million direct and indirect beneficiaries”.
Among the selected projects is a solar ‘suitcases’ system that provides energy for maternity wards, micro-electrical grids to supply clinical posts . . .
