F. de Cuadra R. Palacios C. Mateo

September 2021 - September 2022

Funding entity OCDE - Organisation de Cooperation et de Development Economiques

Participated by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Waya Energy

Research for the development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) tool that can be applied for demand forecasting in Ghana, Senegal, and Uganda to support electrification planning purposes, in terms of defining least-cost pathways to universal electricity access in the aforementioned countries. Model/tool tested by data gathering and running cases in realistic contexts for the countries under study. Capacity building in the use and maintenance of the tool, through cases and seminars/courses.

Layman's summary: Geographic Information System for demand forecasting in Ghana, Senegal, and Uganda, to support least-cost electrification planning.
