The development marks the second application of a P-REC facility in South Sudan by 3Degrees, IOM and EPP, following the successful deployment of a solar plant at Malakal Teaching Hospital in December 2022.
The P-REC backed project at Bor State Hospital – the main healthcare facility serving the city of Malakal and the surrounding region – will power the institution’s night services including computers, fans, refrigerators, sterilization materials, lights and surgical equipment, which are currently being powered using four diesel generators. The project is expected to help the hospital reduce fuel consumption and costs by at least 85% annually.
Dave Mozersky, President of Energy Peace Partners, stated that, “This new P-REC transaction demonstrates both the need and potential for innovative solutions like the P-REC to meet the challenges of electricity access in South Sudan, the least electrified country in the world.”
Amy Pope, Deputy Director General of IOM, added that the project is part of efforts by IOM to leverage clean energy as a tool for peace while ensuring the energy transition is just and inclusive for the people of South Sudan. “Environmental sustainability and the energy transition must be at the heart of building durable solutions,” Pope stated.
