The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) has partnered with the Government of Benin (GoB) to implement the Benin Power Compact (also known as the Benin II Energy Compact) from 2017 to 2022. The compact aims to modernize Benin’s electricity network, strengthen SBEE, extend access to electricity, and improve the quality and reliability of the electricity system. MCC has contracted with Mathematica Policy Research (Mathematica) to conduct an evaluation of two of the four compact activities: (1) the Electricity Generation Project, which aims to increase domestic generation capacity through new solar plants and possibly a thermal power plant, and the rehabilitation of an existing hydroelectric plant; and (2) the Electricity Distribution Project.
