Themis and the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Togo are co-developing a 50MW hydro power plant. The project is located along the Mono River and about 40 km to the northeast of the town of Notsé.
The project will improve dispatch flexibility for peak hours, allowing to substitute expensive diesel or import and will provide spinning reserve that enhances the potential for developing solar plants.
A multicriteria analysis conducted by the International Finance Corporation and based on the adequacy of projects to the needs of Togo determined Tetetou as the most competitive site to reduce the cost of the energy mix in the country. The project will contribute to addressing Togo’s vulnerability to energy imports which account for 40% of the energy injected into the grid. Furthermore, the project will avoid 127,3 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per day, thereby allowing Togo to substantially contribute to global efforts aimed at addressing climate change.
Top priority will be given to environmental, social and biodiversity mitigation measures and best international standards will be applied to maintain competitiveness and deliver meaningful emissions reductions.
