AfDB to spend $1 million to upgrade Africa’s old hydropower stations


The African Development Bank’s Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA) has approved a one-million-dollar grant for the modernization of Africa’s aging hydropower fleet.

According to an AfDB statement, modernizing hydropower stations provides a chance to boost generation capacity at a low cost, with short lead times and minimal environmental impact.

The grant would also be used to map and evaluate the rehabilitation needs of African hydropower facilities, according to the statement.
