Modelling Elements of Smart Grids for sub-Saharan African Countries
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper discusses the potential role of Smart Grids to electrify the poor. It showcases potential benefits specific to smart grids and provides a framework to quantify some of those for a stereotypical case. This is achieved by developing a simple energy systems model using the Open-Source Energy Modelling System (OSeMOSYS). The model and source code are made available for analysts and planners to test and extend the analysis. Finally, the paper interprets the results of the modelling, describes the limitations of the approach, presents the major findings and suggests a way forward.
