The Togolese government plans to achieve 100% electrification to all by 2030, to meet the Millennium goals. The Delphi method is used with the experts drawn from policymakers, academic institutions, financial institutions, non-governmental institutions, and private companies, and the results show that raising the renewable energy business share in Togo through accelerated access to small-scale solar photovoltaics and hydropower is the most feasible route for electrification. The monopoly, non-liberalization of the energy sector, and the lack of a trained workforce were identified as the main inhibitors for private investment. The study recommends the optimization of the system for better performance and the creation of local manufacturing plants to promote the national production of solar system components along the assembly lines.
