The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) organised an expert workshop on “Including Renewable Energy in Generation Expansion Plans” on 27 September in Cape Town, South Africa. This was part of IRENA’s Africa Clean Energy Corridor initiative, which aims to boost the share of renewable power through a coordinated international effort from Cape Town to Cairo. Participants from nine countries along the Corridor discussed how effective, integrated resource planning processes can encourage investment in renewable power options for Africa.
