The Ministry of Energy is inviting prequalification bids for four solar photovoltaic (PV) projects to be developed by independent power producers as part of the United States’ Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC)-backed power sector development compact. The five-year $403m compact – funded with $375m from the MCC and $28m from the Benin government – has been active since 22 June 2017 and is the largest of several programmes backed by development finance institutions which are moving forward in the country.
