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

15 September 2022 |Virtual

In partnership with the Central Africa Power Pool (CAPP), IRENA has launched a second phase of regional training on energy model analysis and planning for CAPP countries.

This 2022 programme builds on the first phase of the IRENA-CAPP Regional Model Analysis & Planning Programme, in which about 50 technical planning experts from seven CAPP member states participated in regional training sessions to enhance energy planning capacity and develop national capacity expansion scenarios with the IRENA SPLAT-MESSAGE modelling framework. This second phase of the programme aims to further the training of CAPP members on the long-term power sector modelling with a focus on regional application. As part of the programme, a consolidated regional study will also be developed, which may be used as the basis for the region’s first power sector masterplan.

The implementation of the programme will be integrated with the ongoing development of the African Continental Power Systems Master Plan (CMP), which is led by the African Union Development Agency (AUDA) and which IRENA is supporting as a modelling partner.

In this inaugural session, IRENA staff and Programme partners presented a detailed view of the capacity building programme elements, including: modality, objectives, deliverables, resource requirements and timeline.

The meeting participation was by invitation only.
