Energy Solutions in Rural Africa: Mapping Electrification Costs of Distributed Solar and Diesel Generation Versus Grid ExtensionType:PublicationPublication date:
Three rural electrification options are analysed showing the cost optimal conditions for a sustainable energy development applying renewable energy sources in Africa. A spatial electricity cost model has been designed to point out whether diesel generators, photovoltaic systems or extension of the grid are the least-cost option in off-grid areas. The resulting mapping application offers support to decide in which regions the communities could be electrified either within the grid or in an isolated mini-grid.
