Street lighting pilot phase : PRODERE I

It consisted in supplying and installing autonomous solar photovoltaic street lamps as well as low consumption lamps in the Boroughs of the Suburbs of Dakar, in religious cities and in certain towns in the interior of Senegal.

One thousand eight hundred and thirty-five (1835) autonomous solar photovoltaic street lamps were installed in twelve (12) Communes of the suburbs of Dakar and in six (6) cities as well as in religious cities.

This project was carried out with the Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency Program of the UEMOA (PRODERE) and the funding was provided by the Commission of the Economic and Monetary Union of West Africa (UEMOA).

o 02 biological stations

o 01 training center

o 10 police and customs stations


The work with the 94 kits of the beginning and the 26 additional kits was completed on 31 December 2016.

The company in charge of the execution is today in the process of lifting the reserves issued by ANER during the reception of the systems.

Diffusion of solar water heaters

This project aims to ensure massive diffusion of solar water heaters in health facilities proposed by the Ministry of Public Health and Social Action.

The first part concerned 20 health facilities proposed by the Ministry of Public Health and Social Action.

In the second part, it is planned to setup 30 solar water heaters in 30 public sanitation facilities in addition to the solar water heaters that will be installed through other projects including the ORIO project and the PRODERE II project.

Connection of the solar installation of the Faculty of Sciences and Techniques of the UCAD.

This project consisted of the electrical connection of the solar photovoltaic equipment of the Faculty of Science and Technology, which could handle certain electrical charges of the faculty such as lighting, electrical outlets …

This solar installation was funded by the German Cooperation PERACOD.

Diffusion of thermal solar equipments (dryer, cooker)

To support women’s groups in their fisheries conservation/processing operations and their cooking activities, ANER is running a program to acquire and install dryers and solar cookers.

The first phase involves the installation of 12 dryers and 10 solar cookers. The solar dryers are distributed in the sites located in Kayar and Sendou.


This project involves the supply of solar power, the distribution and installation of 72 solar water heaters at 120 rural health posts and huts in the « Bassin Arachidier » of Senegal, to contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) on health care and reduction of maternal and infant mortality.

The health structures benefiting from the project are distributed as follows:

¬ Solar electrification of 120 health facilities in the « Bassin Arachidier» :

– 70 health posts with maternity

– 21 health posts without maternity

– 27 health zones

– 01 health center

– 01 National Reintegration Center

¬ Installation of 72 solar water heaters

Electrification of Public Community Infrastructures (PART II) (ESIP II)

This project is divided into two part and represents the Component II of the solar electrification project for structures dedicated to education, health and safety in rural areas.

These structures are distributed as follows:

¬ Solar electrification of 85 structures divided into two parts, of which

– 12 “cases des tout-petits”

– 13 Primary Schools

– 04 Kits for junior high schools (03 in Mariama Bâ and 01 in Faoye)

– 10 Health posts

– 03 Health centers

– 08 Guard posts,

– 04 Forestry posts

– 01 Veterinary post of Coumbacara

– 12 “Daaras”

– 15 Mosques

– 02 Biological stations of Djoudj park

– 01 Thiel Community Radio


In order to implement its strategy called the Regional Initiative for Sustainable Energy (IRED), UEMOA, in collaboration with ANER and SABER, launched the part 2 of the Regional Program for the Development of Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (PRODERE).

This part II includes the solar electrification of public community infrastructures and the supply and installation of 2 water heaters in each of the 4 regional hospitals chosen, at Thiés, Ndioum (Podor), Tamba and Diourbel.

The sites are distributed as follows::

– 4 regional hospitals

– 10 primary schools

– 26 “cases des tout-petits”

– 03 command posts (1 in Djoudj, 2 in the Saloum Delta)

– 30 health posts


This project is part of the strategic orientations and aims to increase the contribution of renewable energies in matching national energy needs and reducing the dependency on imports of fossil fuels.


This is a pilot project for the diffusion of solar dryers to enhance the value of fish products.


The main objective of this project is to preserve forests by reducing the heavy pressure on wood resources through the diffusion of 10,000 equipments to rural households.


This project will help to set up a system for the conservation of milk in rural areas (milk tanks) and to promote its local transformation.


This project, which started with a pilot phase in Cayar, will continue throughout all the Niayes area.

The funding (seeked) will help to establish a mechanism to facilitate the acquisition of equipment by market gardeners.


For cooperation, ANER has initiated a number of partnerships with institutional and corporate actors at national, sub-regional, regional and international levels
