  • La plus grande centrale solaire d'Afrique de l'Ouest — Burkina Faso

Située à une quinzaine de km de Ouagadougou, la centrale est composée de 129.600 panneaux solaires installés sur 60 hectares.

Le Burkina Faso lance mercredi 29 novembre 2017 " la plus grande centrale solaire de l'Afrique de l'Ouest ", une première dans ce pays qui veut se tourner vers les énergies renouvelables, pour combler le déficit qui l'oblige à importer de l'électricité du Ghana et de Côte d'Ivoire. "Elle dégage une puissance de 33 MW, et produira 56 GW par an, soit 5% de la consommation nationale", a expliqué le directeur général de la Société nationale burkinabè d'électrification (SONABEL) François De Salles Ouédraogo.Selon lui, la production de cette électricité coûtera " trois fois moins chère " que celle produite par les centrales au fioul.

Il s'agit de la plus grande centrale solaire d'Afrique de l'Ouest, un projet financé par le Gouvernement burkinabè et par un don de l'Union européenne de 25 millions d'euros (environ 16,4 milliards FCFA), accompagné d'un prêt de 22,5 millions d'euros (environ 15 milliards FCFA) de l'Agence Française de Développement (AFD), nous apprend un communiqué de l'Agence 35° Nord.

La mise en service de cette centrale représente un gain d'émissions de 26 000 tonnes de CO2 par an.

'Le Burkina a pris la ferme résolution de mettre tout en oeuvre pour exploiter une de ses principales ressources naturelles qu'est le soleil', a déclaré le président burkinabè.

Le président français estime que " l'inauguration de la centrale de Zagtouli, c'est l'image d'une Afrique qui s'engage vers des solutions durables, écologiques, à la fois au bénéfice concret et immédiat des populations mais aussi de l'agenda global du climat ".

La centrale solaire de Zagtouli est le premier jalon d'un vaste programme de développement de la production d'énergie solaire au Burkina Faso avec l'objectif de fournir d'ici 2020 plus de 100 MW d'énergie solaire sur le réseau du Burkina Faso, soit environ 30% de la production totale du pays.

D'autres projets sont prévus, notamment deux centrales solaires à Koudougou (20 MW) et à Kaya (10 MW). Un apport bienvenu qui aidera à "réduire les délestages", encore courants en période chaude dans ce pays où l'électricité est encore une commodité rare.
