Harnessing the energy potentials in Central Africa was the focus of the joint extraordinary session of the Council of Ministers and the Management Committee of the Energy Pool of the sub-region abbreviated as PEAC, that held in Yaounde, Cameroon on June 5, 2017. The get-together of some eight member countries of the sub-region and nine electricity corporations alongside technical and financial partners brainstormed on developing the energy sector in the sub-region which despite its enormous potentials, produces only 4 per cent of electricity with just 13 per cent electricity penetration rate. Thus, discussions on the development of the sector focused on two broad base projects; Integrators Priority Projects and the Trans-border Electrification Programmes. Chaired by Léopold Mboli Fatran, current President of the PEAC Council of Ministers, the Steering Committee gave guidelines to the Permanent Secretariat of the PEAC for the operational, concrete and urgent implementation of projects. For the Integration Priority Projects, PEAC earmarked projects such as the Inga Electrical Interconnection Project (DRC), Cabinda (Angola), Pointe Noire (Congo); interconnection of electricity grids in Cameroon and Chad; Chollet hydroelectric development project (Congo-Cameroon border) and associated transmission lines between Cameroon and Congo amongst others. For the Trans-border Electrification Programme, the following projects were highlighted notably: electrification project of the city of Béloko (CAR) from the town of Garoua-Boulaï (Cameroon), electrification project of seven villages of the Central African Republic from the city of Mobayi (DRC), amongst others. Even though financial partners like the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the Islamic Development Bank amongst others have expressed interest in the projects, the Council of Ministers has called on international financial community and the private sector to mobilize more funds for the physical realization of these projects, which are intended to accelerate the socio-economic integration of Central Africa.
