The African Mini-grid Developers Association (AMDA) has officially launched a Sierra Leone country chapter to bolster its support for the country’s electrification efforts via minigrid projects.
AMDA is establishing a more permanent presence in the country to help develop the minigrids sector for the benefit of rural communities in-country. Around 74% of people in the country still lack access to electricity.
The West African country joins a growing list of AMDA country chapters including Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria and Zambia. AMDA represents 42 companies operating minigrids in 17 countries on the continent.
