Renewable energy credits to fund electrification of South Sudan hospital

South Sudan’s first Peace Renewable Energy Credit (P-REC) agreement will support the solar electrification of the Malakal Teaching Hospital, the only referral hospital for Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile states in the country.

In the agreement – the largest to date – the renewable energy credits are obtained by the San Francisco based renewable solution provider 3Degrees from an International Organisation for Migration (IOM) managed solar plant near the city of Malakal. The energy credits are transferred to financial tool provider Block’s decentralised financial service system.
