Planning and prospects for renewable power: West Africa

The report highlights the importance of a regular and well-informed process to continually update targets at all levels. The region faces daunting energy security and access challenges. Yet West African countries have increasingly harmonised their various plans and policies to take advantage of the region’s vast renewable energy potential, with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) providing a key co-ordination framework. This report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), while building on earlier assessments, takes account of the latest developments in region’s dynamic power sector. IRENA performed its first assessment of the prospects for renewable power development in continental ECOWAS countries in 2013. Based on an updated application of IRENA’s System Planning Test model for West Africa (SPLAT-W), the 2018 study finds that renewable power capacity could potentially reach levels near 65% of peak load across West Africa by 2030.
