Event: Techno-Economic Analysis of PUE Minigrids in Africa

  • 16 February 2022


Date: February 22, 2022, 2 pm CET

The Clean and Advanced Technologies for Sustainable Landscapes (CTSL) Program in Africa and Southeast Asia seeks to:

1) Increase access to advanced, clean, reliable, and affordable energy sources to improve agricultural productivity, food and water security, and enable resilience
2) Accelerate progress toward development and economic growth and stability goals
3) Increase in-country technical and analytical capacity to support transition to self-reliance

For the last six months this program has been providing technical assistance to three countries in Africa—Zambia, Kenya and Mozambique—to develop methodologies and approaches to assess opportunities for agricultural productive uses of energy to help improve viability of clean energy minigrids. The CTSL is now excited to partner with the Africa LEDS Partnership to support regional peer learning on this project and the methodologies being developed to a broader network of interested country stakeholders.

Regional Learning Webinar Two
This webinar session is the second in a series of regional learning events focused on analysis of opportunities for agricultural productive uses of energy in minigrids. This first session held on December 14, 2021, introduced the overall context and background of the project and outlined the overall approach and methodology to estimate annual electric load profiles for key agricultural applications. This second session will focus on techno-economic analysis of potential RE microgrids with PUE loads and associated levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) using the REopt microgrid optimization tool.
