Projet d’intensification de l’éclairage public de la ville d’Ebolowa en Energie solaire
Focus: Adaptation, Mitigation
Sector(s): Adaptation / Resilience / Disaster risk reduction, Carbon reduction / Low-carbon transition
Currently, only 15 percent of Ebolowa benefits from public lighting concentrated in the main thoroughfares, which leaves many public spaces, squares, intersections and roads unlit. This increases the risk of traffic accidents and violence, and has a negative impact on economic activities and tourism. Ebolowa is therefore aiming to install 1,000 photovoltaic solar streetlights as part of its Solar Lighting Project. Using solar energy mitigates emissions, while the project as a whole could change the picture of citywide energy access and equity. The project has the potential to transform the entire city, making spaces safe and allowing residents and tourists to remain active for longer hours.
