The UN agency for migration IOM and Norwegian company Scatec Solar have started a collaboration to install solar panels in Malakal, South Sudan, to support the organization’s humanitarian projects for displaced people in the area. 

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is planning to use solar energy to power a significant part of its humanitarian operations in Malakal, South Sudan, by early next year, the organization announced last month. 

This would reduce diesel fuel consumption in the humanitarian hub by 80 to 90 percent, IOM said.

“If Sudan can use energy generated within its geography, such as solar, the costs associated and the disadvantageous political leverage of using diesel fuel will reduce, allowing humanitarian operation to operate and evolve at a higher level.”
