Capacity Building on Long-Term Energy Planning in the Republic of Cameroon: Third training course

IRENA has been supporting the government of Cameroon for the implementation of this capacity building programme for the development of a national renewable energy master plan, as per the country request. As part of this programme, the first capacity building training was held on 12 – 19 July 2021, followed by a second session on 23-27 August 2021. The programme aims to enhance energy planning capacity within national institutions on long-term planning through training on the SPLAT-MESSAGE model and the development of energy scenarios, to enable the national working team to prepare a national renewable energy master plan.

This third training course covered the progress made on the development of a baseline scenario and the definition of alternate scenarios. Significant time was also allocated for the review of current report draft in more detail and the identification of areas that require additional data/research.

The course was led by IRENA experts and attended by the core working team – energy planning professionals from the Ministry of Water Resources and Energy (MINEE), Cameroon Electricity Company (ENEO Cameroon), Ministry of Environment, Protection of Nature and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED), National Society of Electricity Transport (SONATREL), Rural Electrification Agency (AER).
