Burundi-based renewable energy company Gigawatt Global Coöperatief U.A. has announced the completion of the country’s first large-scale PV plant – a 7.5 MW installation under development since 2015 and for which construction works were announced in 2017.

The project was financed by South Africa-based equity investor Inspired Evolution, the U.K. government-funded Renewable Energy Performance Platform (REPP), and Gigawatt Global itself, while the construction loans were refinanced by the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC).
