Djibouti inaugurates debut windfarm.

President Ismail Omar Guelleh today inaugurated Djibouti’s first-ever windfarm, advancing his stated ambition to make the nation of 1.1m the first in Africa to rely entirely on renewable sources for electricity by 2035. The Red Sea Power (RSP) windfarm, near Lake Goubet, will provide 60 MW of clean energy, boosting overall capacity by 50% and averting 252,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. As the first significant international investment in the energy sector in Djibouti, the $122m project creates the country’s first independent power producer (IPP) and sets a template for further private investment. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-09-08/djibouti-unveils-122m-wind-farm-as-it-plans-green-grid-by-2035#xj4y7vzkg
