Rwanda: New deal with Belgium to boost access to electricity

Rwanda’s Ministry of Infrastructure has signed a new deal in partnership with Belgium that will see the electricity project renovated and upgraded to increase its distribution network in Rubavu district from 6.6 KiloVolts to 30 KiloVolts.

The upgraded network project will stabilize and reduce power outages and improve electricity services provided by the Rwanda Energy Group (REG). Rwanda has currently reached a 68.4% access to power against the 2017 set ambitious target to have 100% of Rwandans access electricity (on grid and off grid) by 2024.
