Infinity Power, a prominent renewable energy provider in Africa, has recently partnered with the Cameroon West Regional Council to develop up to 4GW of renewable energy by 2035. This collaboration aims to utilize various technologies such as solar, battery storage, wind, hydro, and biomass to cater to the growing energy demands in Cameroon. The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signifies a significant step towards sustainable energy development in the region.

Strategic Partnership for Renewable Energy Development

The MoU was signed by Ahmed Mulla, Deputy CEO of Infinity Power, and Dr. Jules Hilaire Focka Focka, President of the Cameroon West Regional Council. The presence of Dr. Vincent Kitio, Lead of Urban Energy Solutions at UN-Habitat, further emphasizes the importance of technical expertise and community involvement in the project. This strategic partnership aims to address Cameroon’s critical power needs and facilitate socio-economic development in the region.

Impact on Energy Provision and Economy

Infinity Power, with its existing 1.3GW of renewable energy capacity and a target of reaching 10GW by 2030, will implement the Cameroonian projects in phases. The initiative not only focuses on providing clean, renewable power for domestic consumption but also aligns with the United Nations’ sustainable development goals. The renewable energy projects are set to play a transformative role in enhancing energy provision, economic growth, and poverty alleviation in Cameroon.

Unlocking Renewable Energy Potential

Dr. Vincent Kitio highlighted the vast renewable energy potential of the Western Region, estimating over 6GW of capacity compared to the current 100MW received from the national grid. The collaboration between Infinity Power and the Cameroon West Regional Council is poised to unlock this potential and bridge the gap between energy supply and demand in the region. The project aligns with Infinity Power’s vision of expanding its renewable energy footprint across Africa while supporting local communities and sustainable development.
