City of Praia, 16 November 2018

 

The Cape Verde power sector master plan that defines the country sector development strategy until 2040 was presented in the city of Praia in Santiago.

The project was developed by an international team of consultants leaded by Gesto.

In order to develop the master plan, all the regulatory, legal and institutional framework conditions were assessed. The team studied all electricity requirements and DSM potential, identified all electricity generation and energy storage options, studied the least-cost electricity supply system analysis with RE and back-up technologies. Several demand-supply scenarios and system impacts were evaluated, also considering the grid infrastructure development. Environmental and social impacts were assessed, economic and financial affects were evaluated, electricity sales and feed-in tariff studies, policy recommendation were made and finally, a capacity building program was implemented.
