  • RE Off-Grid Explorer: Visualization of Electrification Scenarios until 2030

    Christine Nettersheim posted Information | 11 February 2020
    Dear all, I would like to share with you the "Renewable Energy Off-Grid Explorer", which allows for a scenario analysis for 52 countries (incl. many African states) regarding the energy mix to achieve universal access by 2030. Find the explorer and more information on the underlying methodology at...

About the group

The African Renewable Energy Technology Platform (AFRETEP) aims at building a network of African research institutions dealing with renewable energy.

Within the framework of the project, DG JRC has been developed a platform with 830+ African and European members, cooperating institutions for research (AFRETEP); provided nearly hundred African academics in regional trainings on the state-of-art rural electrification technologies; developed mapping applications and methods to support national governments and agencies to decide which energy technology options would better deliver their goals of rural electrification and made these available to the continents scientific communities in publications. The methods -developed by the JRC platform- take into account the diversity of energy resources, coupled with the existing grid, transport infrastructure, hydropower resources, the current diesel and photovoltaic costs, to map the current least-cost electricity options for rural electrification. These results are available on the capacity4dev energy community. As requested by many users the developed geographical datasets have been made publicly available in this website and as well as the related published papers and conferences that have facilitated the spread of the results to the interested stakeholders.
