The Mini Hydropower Plants and Related Distribution Networks Development Project (PDM-Hydro) is part of the Scaling up Renewable Energy Programme (SREP) approved for Mali by the Climate Investment Fund (CIF) in November 2011.
The PDM-Hydro project aims to contribute to the improvement of renewable power supply and enhance access to electricity in the project area.
The project will be implemented over the 2018-2022 period.
It will benefit the population and economic operators in the regional provinces of Mopti and Ségou, and will connect 12,500 households and economic operators to the network operated by “Société Energie du Mali” EDM-SA.

Total cost: 40080000
Source(s) of financing
The project is a standalone investment operation that will be financed from a TAF grant, a European Union grant and the Malian national budget.
The option of parallel financing of project activities was preferred to avoid difficulties that might arise from incompatibilities of procurement rules and procedures of the various donors.
The project is co-financed by the European Union for UA 20.03 million (or EUR 24.42 million) and by the Malian Government for UA 0.05 million.
The Bank will finance the costs of institution building, project management and, in part, infrastructure.
The activities to be financed by the European Union include developing and equipping the Djenné power station and part of the associated distribution network.
The Government of Mali will finance the project's environmental and social impact mitigation measures.
