According to the bank website, this project by the Africa REN platform will aim to contribute to the development, construction and operations of (greenfield) renewable energy projects in low-income sub-Saharan countries. All projects owned by the Africa REN platform will provide clean and reliable electricity to countries which have low electrification rates, at lower prices than current thermal power stations. Africa REN thereby aims to secure diversification of the electricity mix, increase in (specifically rural) energy access, sustainable local employment and transfer of knowledge and competencies in the West African region. Africa REN is committed to sustainable development and to ensure that the environment and society at large benefit from their projects.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW). A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order.
