• Reduce dependence on fossil fuels and diversify the electricity mix of Côte d’Ivoire’s electricity sector in order to prevent a single
source of production from exceeding 60% of installed capacity
• Enhance sustainable integration of national networks in the ECOWAS community, with a view to facilitating energy exchanges
and trade between member states
• Diversify the energy mix and reduce greenhouse gases, Coping with the growth in demand, Improving the quality of service
and Stimulating economic growth at national and sub-regional levels.
