Rwanda Lake Kivu Energy Plant

The ALSF provided advisory services support to the Government of Rwanda to negotiate and sign a concession and a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with an investor, to develop an energy plant worth USD 200 million on the shores of Lake Kivu. The Project is expected to generate an additional 56 Megawatts (MW) of electricity for the country—significantly contributing to the country’s efforts to increase its installed power generation capacity by 291MW by 2024. The main objective of this project is to extract methane gas from the production area at Lake Kivu and enable the plant to produce electricity from the methane gas. This will support the country's efforts to ensure that all Rwandan households and businesses have access to electricity.
