The African Development Bank (BAD) approved on Wednesday a grant of 11 million US dollars for the Democratic Republic of Congo. These funds support the «Subsidiary Action Program of the Equatorial Lakes of the Nile (NELSAP)" according to the Energy Ministry.

This program aims to "extend in short-term access to electricity at lower cost in the DRC and in the countries of the equatorial lakes region of the Nile".

Its overall goal is also to improve access to electricity in the countries of the Nile Basin Initiative by an increased cross-border electricity exchange.

The Ministry of Energy noted that the national rates of access to electricity in the regions of the Equatorial Lakes of the Nile are low. They are between 2 and 17%.

According to ACP, the rate is 4% in DRC and the provinces of North-Kivu and South-Kivu have been targeted as part of this program combining an unmet demand for electricity of 115 MW.

It will increase the supply of electricity, mainly from hydro at a much lower price than the cost obtained by self-production.

The NELSAP project will also establish interconnections between Uganda-Rwanda and Kenya-Uganda and strengthen the existing ones between Burundi, DRC and Rwanda.

"The component of the project includes the construction of the 220 KV line Goma-Bukavu (95 Km) and the post of Buhandahanda, the construction of the 220 kV line Goma -Gisenyi (13 Km) and the post of Goma, the studies, monitoring and supervision of the project and the project management.

The implementation of the DRC component of NELSAP will fill the energetic deficit of the provinces of North-Kivu and South-Kivu to promote the exchange of energy between the countries connected to the regional interconnected system and increase the access rate to electricity in areas of the project from 4 to 7%.

This increased access to electricity will raise up the economy of the fuels needed for self-production of electricity using diesel generators.
