29 Sep Cape Verde Power Sector Master Plan – end of 2nd phase of the project
In the 3rd week of September the CAPE VERDE POWER SECTOR MASTER PLAN project finished its 2nd phase, with the 2nd steering committee – Electricity Demand Scenarios and Electricity Supply Options.
This phase was dedicated to the fieldwork in Cape Verde regarding electricity demand analysis. Different electricity demand scenarios were elaborated, considering determining factors such as economic development, expected elasticity to electricity prices, demand side management (DSM), and direct renewable energy use at the consumer side (behind the meter).
Daily and seasonal demand curves were prepared and proposed scenarios were based on the analysis of existent historical data; on the foreseen Investments and Developments Plans; on Economic Projections; on Demographic Projections. The analysis were based on a disaggregation of typical consumer classes by socioeconomic characteristics and economic activities.
Gesto is supporting the development of the this master plan that will define the sector strategy until 2040. The project will be finished by end 2017.
