I’m a renewable energy engineer specialized in rural electrification.  

Over the past 8 years, I’ve led electrification projects in Senegal and Benin as part of various missions. Before joining CPCS, I worked at the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) in the Energising Development program. As a technical advisor for the Rural Electrification Senegal (ERSEN) Project, I focused on developing mini solar power plants to electrify villages.  

My expertise spans renewable energy, energy storage, underground, overhead power grids and energy efficiency. I’ve also developed financial arrangements such as supplier credit, leasing, and institutional credit to facilitate equipment acquisition.
