According to the statement, this agreement signed for the supply of products and services intended for the development of the "Rural Electrification Project in Angola" will benefit around one million people.

"This agreement consists of Samsung SDI supplying E5S lithium-ion batteries, to be incorporated into the solar energy storage system, which will allow the electrification of a total of 48 communes located in five provinces of Angola (Malanje, Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul, Bié and Moxico)", they declared.

"This rural electrification project includes the construction of 'clean energy' distribution infrastructure in three phases, comprising 48 hybrid photovoltaic generation systems with energy storage in lithium-ion batteries ('mini-grids'), which will operate autonomously without the use of diesel generation and with a total installed capacity of 719MWh of available energy", they indicated.

The implementation of this system is an alternative "to extending the state network or installing diesel generators as the main source of electricity", they declared.

Thus, according to the entities, "there will be savings in fuel consumption and a corresponding reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions".

This reduction in CO2 emissions is also the objective of the "Energia Angola 2025" plan, which aims to diversify the country's energy matrix, in order to guarantee that around 77 percent of the rural population has access to electricity, and contribute to the reduction annual pollutant emissions of around one million tons of carbon dioxide.

"Our goal is to take care not only of our generation, but also of future generations, to offer them a cleaner planet. And, therefore, we always look for suppliers and partners with the same vision, who provide us with innovative and conscious products", said the chairman and founder of MCA, Manuel Couto Alves, quoted in the statement.

The Rural Electrification Project in Angola began construction in 2023 and is expected to be completed in 2026, involving the MCA Group, the Government through the Ministry of Finance, a consortium of banks represented by Commerzbank AG and the German Export Credit Agency Euler Hermes (ECA).
