WG C1.9

11/07/2013

WG C1.9 of CIGRE Study Committee C1 on Power System Planning and Development

The workgroup would like to thank all those who contributed to this report, including the many country paper submissions that were received. This document can serve as a valuable benchmarking resource, and for obtaining information. It should be updated and enhanced in the years to come, to serve as repository for use by planning engineers and others across Africa.

The following workgroups are recommended for continuation of the work done by C1.9:

  • Future major interconnections in Africa
  • Study of the use of renewable energy in Africa to meet load growth, and tapping into the vast hydro, solar, geothermal and wind resources.
  • Study the financing challenges facing African countries, similar to the work done by the world bank in releasing the book in 2011 entitled “Africa’s Power Infrastructure - Investment, Integration, Efficiency”
