Zambia’s GreenCo receives US grant for storage study

April 6, 2023

The US Trade and Development Agency has awarded a grant to Zambia’s GreenCo Power Storage Limited for a feasibility study to increase the deployment of battery energy storage systems throughout the country. 

GreenCo selected Maryland-based K&M Advisors, LLC, to carry out the study.

The study will inform GreenCo’s selection of battery storage technologies and system design by assessing the technical, economic, and financial viability of developing and implementing a utility-scale BESS pilot in the Sesheke District of Zambia, where it will be paired with a solar photovoltaic project. 

Using the findings obtained from the pilot, the study will provide recommendations for an expanded 400 megawatt-hour BESS portfolio in the country.
