Senegal adopts Law on Renewable Energy

In July, 2010 Senegal adopted the Guidance on Renewable Energy law aimed at promoting renewable energy production in the country. Broadly, the objectives include the target to secure supplies of renewable energy in sufficient quantities at low cost, as well as increase people’s access to modern energy services and reduce vulnerability to exogenous risks.

According to minister of renewable energies, biofuels and aquaculture, Therese Coumba Diop, “Nature has endowed Senegal great potential for solar energy that we can develop“. With the passage of this “law of social orientation”, Senegal might exceed its targets of 15 per cent in 2015 for development of renewable energy.
