Signature of a 100 M€ loan from AFD to Eskom [fr]
On 22 November 2013, H.E. Elisabeth Barbier, Ambassador of France in South Africa, was present for the signature of a 100 M€ loan from AFD to Eskom, the South African public operator for electricity, for the funding of a 100 MW solar concentration plant.
This ambitious project reflects South Africa’s desire to diversify its energy resources by using more renewable energies and less coal.
Eskom also benefits from the support of the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the Clean Tech Fund, the KfW and the BEI.
