Infinity Power has entered a memorandum of understanding with the Cameroon West Regional Council to establish up to 4GW of renewable energy capacity by 2035.

The move is part of the company’s broader strategy to expand its renewable energy footprint across Africa, with a target of 10GW in operation by 2030.

Infinity Power, which is a joint venture between Egypt-based Infinity and United Arab Emirates-based Masdar, currently operates 1.3GW of renewable energy.

The proposed projects in Cameroon will be developed in phases and will encompass a mix of solar, wind, hydro, biomass and battery storage solutions.

These renewable energy initiatives are designed to meet the country’s growing domestic power requirements.

Infinity Power CEO Nayer Fouad stated: “This impressive facility, which will utilise wind and solar power amongst other technologies, has the potential to transform energy provision in the area, help bolster Cameroon’s economy and deliver huge benefits to local communities.”

The country currently meets most of its energy requirements through gas and hydroelectric power.

The agreement was formalised by Infinity Power deputy CEO Ahmed Mulla and Cameroon West Regional Council president Jules Hilaire Focka Focka.

The signing ceremony was attended by UN-Habitat Urban Energy Solutions lead, Vincent Kitio.

UN-Habitat will offer technical support, participate in feasibility studies and assist in the creation of a governance framework for energy generation and distribution.

Focka Focka stated: “During the preparation of the Western Region Strategic Development Plan, the business community requested that energy generation should be the top priority as it will stimulate industrial development.”
