Acció's Internationalization Programme of the Generalitat de Catalunya: A Look at Ivory Coast


At the end of July 2023, for the second consecutive year, we have concluded our internationalization project of the Action Program of the Generalitat de Catalunya. A step forward that highlights our commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency beyond our borders.

Why Côte d’Ivoire? With the invaluable support of the Acció team, we chose to continue working in Côte d’Ivoire as a strategic destination. Our desire? Bring our photovoltaic solutions to this region, providing a sustainable alternative for its growing energy demand.

Our key objectives in Côte d’Ivoire include:

  1. Market Prospecting: Identify the business sectors with the greatest potential to integrate solar solutions, thus contributing to reducing their energy costs.
  2. Local Collaboration: Find local sales agents, ensuring that our solutions are tailored to the specific needs of the Ivorian market.
  3. Funding and Support: Explore grant programs and other local funding opportunities that facilitate the implementation of solar projects.

This day has led us to connect with a total of 25 companies in this region, with whom we had the opportunity to hold face-to-face meetings, thanks to a detailed agenda of visits organized in Abidjan on July 11 and 12.

Final thoughts Although the expected duration of the project was 4 months, our stay was extended in order to deepen the understanding of the Ivorian market. What we have learned gives us a detailed overview of local energy needs and the challenges faced by businesses in this area.

Now, with this experience in hand, we continue to work passionately to drive solar transformation in Côte d’Ivoire. We are convinced that photovoltaic solutions can play a crucial role in this nation’s energy future.
