According to a study by the World Bank (WB), contained in the Cameroon Energy (Eneo) Annual Activity Report of 2017, sixty-two percent of Cameroon's public electricity is available to the public electricity concessionaire. "Electricity supply has slightly changed in the last three years (58 in 2015 , 1%, in 2015 – 60.1% and in 2017 – 62%), "informs the report, for which the APA received a copy on Wednesday.

The number of subscribers at the end of 2017 was 1,184,372, during the reporting period, 99,413 new families and companies were connected.

Experts believe that with a capacity of 1360 megawatts (MW), of which 998 Eneo and 362 other manufacturers, the government's goal is to allow all Cameroon's people to access electricity by 2035, is a major challenge.

Joël Nana Kontchou, Managing Director of Eneo, underlined in his annual "Step by Step" report that "the quality of electricity supply has improved with significant levels of investment, overall untapped energy cuts and better availability of production equipment."


However, he regretted that "breaks in the north did not reach the target level of services". In total, more than 35 billion CFA francs were invested to improve electricity supply across Cameroon.

Claiming an annual growth of 4.8%, Eneo's goal is to provide customers with affordable energy and reliable service quality, while at the same time using the governance model in Africa.

The actis subsidiary of the British investment group Actis, Eneo, generated a turnover of CZK 291.6 billion, with a gross operating result of CFA 43,483.6 billion.
