Rwanda Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic Battery Storage System

In this project a feasibility study and a site selection survey will be completed for Rwanda’s first large-scale solar + energy storage generation project. The study will serve a dual purpose: 1) it will demonstrate the feasibility of adding an 8 MW solar array enhanced with an 8 MWh of Lithium-Ion battery energy storage to the Rwanda grid , and 2) the project will also show more broadly that solar, when combined with energy storage is a viable planning asset for more than 50% of the planned 3x expansion of the Rwandan grid.
