PREPARATION OF AN INDICATIVE LEAST COST GEOSPATIAL ELECTRIFICATION PLAN TO ACHIEVE UNIVERSAL ACCESS IN BENIN
This project developed electrification planning models using OnSSET and deployed a web platform based on GeoNode and the Global Electrification Platform.
Description

Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) will be a crucial part of Benin’s economic and social development. In order to facilitate the transitions needed for SDG7, robust energy planning efforts need to be put in place. Reliable energy-related data are essential for electrification planning. Information concerning settlements’ size and location, distance from existing and/or planned infrastructure (e.g. transmission network, power plants, and roads), economic activity, local renewable energy resources, etc. can convey useful  information and help planners take the right decisions regarding the most effective pathway for electrification. However, it is usually the  case that in countries where universal electrification is still to be achieved, such information is scarce and difficult to access. This project developed electrification planning models using OnSSET and deployed a web platform based on GeoNode and the Global Electrification Platform.
