Guinea is developing the both the SE4All Action Agenda and the Investment Prospectus in the framework of the SE4All implementation in the ECOWAS region, coordinated by ECREEE. Before that, the main objectives of the government in terms of access were fixed by a 2012 Energy Policy document that envisaged an increase of the access rate to 50% in 2020, as well as improvements in energy efficiency, an increase in the share of renewables and a reduction in the local electricity tariffs. A 50% access to clean cooking to 2025 was also foreseen. These objectives are being revised in the Action Agenda.

 Guinea has considerable renewable energy resources, particularly for hydroelectricity for which around 4740 MW of potential has been detected. The energy demand in Guinea is projected to raise considerably and – according to government forecast – additional capacity between 535 and 1838 MW would be necessary by 2025.

 The SE4All implementation is followed by a focal point in the Ministry of Environment and Energy.
