IRENA Regional Model Analysis & Planning Support Programme: Central Africa Training 2

14 – 18 June 2021 |Virtual


In partnership with the Central Africa Power Pool (CAPP), IRENA is delivering a six-month regional training on energy model analysis and planning to CAPP countries in 2021.

The programme aims to build and enhance capacity for long-term energy planning in seven CAPP countries able to participate: Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, and Rwanda. The participants include about 50 experts from the energy-planning offices at ministries, electric utilities and specialised agencies in those countries.

In this training session, participants worked to further develop long-term scenarios to explore the possible development of renewable energy and their national power sector infrastructure with IRENA’s System Planning Test (SPLAT) model framework for Central Africa. After the training, with IRENA support, participants will continue their work on country reports which synthesize their modelling and analysis, and develop presentations for a final session with high-level representatives from regional and international organisations involved in energy planning in the region.
