"Le Cameroun veut devenir l'un des principaux exportateurs d'électricité du continent alors qu'il peine encore à couvrir ses besoins.

Pourtant, la mission ne semble pas impossible...........Le coût global de la réalisation des infrastructures de production et de transport d'électricité est estimé à plus de 5 850 milliards de F CFA (près de 9 milliards d'euros) sur dix ans, auxquels s'ajoutent 663 milliards de F CFA pour le programme d'électrification rurale.........Les besoins de la sous-région sont estimés à 13 000 MW par an et augmentent au rythme de la croissance économique.Parmi les premiers clients sur les rangs figure le Tchad, avec une puissance installée de 245 MW et un taux d'accès à l'électricité inférieur à 3 %. Mais aussi le géant nigérian, qui ne dispose que de 3 000 MW de puissance installée (quinze fois moins que l'Afrique du Sud, pourtant trois fois moins peuplée)."

Govt partners Chinese Huawey on solar project at 53bn CFA

Limited signed a credit agreement, amounting to 53 billion CFA Francs for the financing of the first phase of the electrification of 350 locations in the country by solar system, APA learned from official source on Saturday. For an 18-month turnaround time, this phase relates to 166 locations scattered throughout the national territory. A pilot phase has already been done in Soa, on the outskirts of the capital Yaoundé and Sangmélima (South), at the birthplace of the head of State Paul Biya. In a comprehensive manner, this project aims at the increase of coverage of rural electrification rate, currently estimated at 20%, the empowerment of energy supply as well as the creation of income generating activities in affected areas.

Business News of Thursday, 5 March 2015 Source: Investir au Cameroun The rural electrification Agency (EIA) with the assistance of the European Union (EU) conducted a study of Cameroonian territory, to identify sites that can accommodate projects of rural electrification, on the one hand, and development of renewable energy, on the other hand.

37 sites to produce 37 MW of biomass energy found

At the end of this survey which lasted 3 years, 37 sites have been identified in 9 regions out of 10 in Cameroon. On these various sites, it was noted that 37 MW of energy can be produced through biomass. Biomass refers to the energy produced by chemical transformation or combustion of organic material of vegetable or animal origin.

In this country, it is more common for agro-food industries such as the Sosucam, which produces the energy to run its plants through the burning of sugar cane waste.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas production increases

Talk of liquefied petroleum gas or what is fondly called domestic gas being scarce is no longer news to Cameroonians. On the contrary, its availability throughout the year, especially during end-of-year feasts, arouses concern. Meanwhile, at the Cameroon Petroleum Depot, (Société Camerounaise des Dépots Pétroliere, SCDP), there is no more talk of gas scarcity. In its Yaounde depot in the Nsam neighbourhood now exists a 500-tonne storage facility, while the Douala depot hosts facilities of 150 tonnes, “always filled with gas.”

Officials of the structure say gas scarcity was common when the company used analogue equipment to refill cylinders. SA firms will work on $2.2bn photovoltaic park in Cameroon. Business News of Tuesday, 10 February 2015 Source: bdlive.co.za GSC Energy will start work on a 500MW solar photovoltaic park costing about $2.2bn in Cameroon in the second half of this year, founder and chairman Steven Moti said on Monday.

GSC Energy heads a consortium that includes Austria’s Sun Value, and two other South African firms, Tricom Structures and Conco, a subsidiary of the JSE-listed Consolidated Infrastructure Group. The project would create 3,000-4,000 direct and indirect jobs in SA and Cameroon, Mr Moti said. Some of the materials would be sourced from China and some from SA. Renewable energy projects around Africa have been gaining momentum in the past few years, partly because they attract more developmental financing than coal-fired energy projects.

YAKE Solar 'Light for All' Video Haute Energy Systems (HES) Mbonge-Cameroon. From cities to villages, solar lamps are in. (Business in Cameroon) - Virtual salvation from the repeated electrical power outages and problems and fires caused by storm lamps and candles, solar lamps have made a blazing debut in Cameroonian households Long considered to be the energy source of the wealthy, solar energy is quickly spreading among everyday Cameroonian people. The oil company Total is among the first companies in the sector to sell its “Awango” solar lamps in various service stations (unit cost: 7,000 FCFA). Cameroon’s demand for solar lamps, which are easily rechargeable and safer, pushed other companies such as GN Solaire France to embark on this adventure.

Today, the solar lamp is doing well. In Yaoundé and in Douala, the country’s two major cities, they can be found in virtually all hardware stores. The most popular item is the solar lamp equipped with a USB charger for cellular phones. When Cameroon turns sunlight into energy. (Business in Cameroon) - It is a known fact: Cameroon has the 2nd highest hydroelectric potential in Africa behind the Democratic Republic of Congo. But Cameroon is also a very sunny country and therefore has equally impressive potential in solar energy, particularly in the northern region of the country.

Indeed, according to the Electricity Sector Regulatory Agency’s (ARSEL) data, average insolation in the North is 5.8 KWh/m2/day compared to 4 KWh/m2/day in the South. “Therefore, Cameroon’s average insolation is 4.9KWh/m2,” ARSEL estimates. In light of this, over the last few years, the Cameroonian government has been promoting the country’s solar potential. At the international forums attended by the Ministry of Energy, the search for partners interested in investing in this sector has become the order of the day.

On this quest for solar energy, importers, businessmen and even government authorities have not been left behind.

BY MarEx 2014-12-25 18:09:50 Golar LNG has signed an agreement with Societe Nationale de Hydrocarbures (SNH) and Perenco Cameroon for the development of a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. The agreement is premised on the allocation of 500 bcf of natural gas reserves from offshore Kribi fields which will be exported to global markets via the GoFLNG facility Golar Hilli, now under construction at the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore.

The project will be located 20km off the coast of Cameroon. Golar will provide the liquefaction facilities and services under a tolling agreement to SNH and Perenco as owners of the upstream joint venture who also intend to produce LPG for the local market in association with the project. It is anticipated that the allocated reserves will be produced at the rate of some 1.2 million tons of LNG per annum over an approximate eight year period.

Cameroun: Le chantier du barrage de Lom Pangar passe à la phase opérationnelle. DBI - Cameroon. Although it has several thermal power plants scattered across its territory, Cameroon has always relied on hydropower for its industrial activity.

Yet, although experts unanimously award Cameroon second place in hydroelectric potential in Africa (the Democratic Republic of Congo taking gold), the country currently has only three hydroelectric dams, located on two of its major rivers. These include the Lagdo hydroelectric dam on the Benue river (a tributary of the Niger), and the Songloulou and Edea dams, both on the Sanaga river. Locals say that the crocodiles know better than to get near them.

With an installed capacity of 72 MW, the Lagdo dam feeds Cameroon’s dry northern provinces. Both the Edea and Songlouglou dams – they are just a few kilometers apart – are far larger, with respectively 263 and 384 MW of capacity. The coming years may belie this, since three hydroelectric dams are currently under construction in different parts of the country. Gaz du Cameroun to supply Bonabéri industrial zone.
