The SBEE Sub-transmission and Distribution System Restructuring and Extension Project (PRESREDI) is a major investment project to expand electricity grids and connect more subscribers. The project will be co-financed by the ADF (43%), the French Development Agency (AFD) (47%) and the SBEE (10%). The implementation period is 36 months from 2018 to 2020.
The goal of the project is to: increase the electricity access rate in Benin and more specifically in the cities of Cotonou, Porto-Novo, Abomey, Bohicon and Lokossa and their environs; and improve electricity supply and reduce overall energy losses (evaluated at 23% in 2015) in the sub-transmission and distribution networks of the SBEE. Specifically, the project seeks to consolidate and expand the medium- and low-voltage distribution networks in the abovementioned localities and connect 10,000 new households.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are the inhabitants of the municipalities of Cotonou, Porto-Novo, Akpro-Misserete and Seme-Kpodji (in Oueme Department); Lokossa (Department of Mono); Dogbo, Djakotomey, Klouekanme and Toviklin (in Couffo Department); and Abomey, Bohicon and Zogbodomey (in Department of Zou). The project will provide a regular electricity supply to the inhabitants of these towns and their environs, including schools, health centres, as well as commercial and industrial companies. Specifically, the project will provide the SBEE with an additional 40,000 new connections, covering at least 212,000 individuals including at least 109,000 women (51%). The project will benefit SBEE employees through a capacity-building programme.
