The objective of this project is the development of the Universal Access to Electricity Strategy of Ecuador, based on a Georreferenced Electricity Access Plan, which will lead the country to supply sustainable, reliable, affordable, and universal access to power services in 2030. The high-level geospatial universal electrification access plan (PAUNE) will provide a sound strategic foundation for the detailed design and systematic incremental implementation of grid extension and connection to the national power system, integrated with the corresponding execution of isolated off-grid supply systems (mini-grids and standalone systems) for a variety of residential, community and productive customers, at the least possible cost, using the Reference Electrification Model REM. PAUNE will be implemented in the whole country from 2020 to 2030. The strategy will also identify the necessary investment plan to achieve this target, based on a sustainable financial framework for the implementation period.
