Master Plan 2014 Reports

The 2014 Master Plan Update

The purpose of the EAPP Master plan is to analyze the benefit of regional cooperation and to recommend a package of new cross-border transmission lines. The 2014 analysis is based on a model study of regional least-cost planning using the Balmorel model ( Open Source Model;) taking into account for example electricity demand growth, and a large number of supply alternatives. The Master plan recommends six new transmission lines with a total capacity of 3,400 MW to be in place by 2020.

The 2014 Master plan updates the Master Plan 2011 for expansion of the Eastern Africa electricity system. The 2011 Master Plan included Burundi, Djibouti, East DRC, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. The 2014 Master Plan has been extended in scope to include Libya, the entire DRC, and South Sudan. In total, 12 countries2 are now included.

The recommendations of the 2014 Master Plan are based on analyses of regional least-cost investments in generation and transmission. A Main scenario and 20 alternative scenarios have been used to analyze the potential development of the electricity system. The scenarios have been used to analyse the sensitivity of the results with respect to the central parameters.

In the executive summary, the focus is on decisions that can be taken in the short term. Therefore, the current report discusses the possible development of the electricity system towards 2020 and 2025, with the long-term perspectives (towards 2040) provided in other volumes of the Master Plan (e.g. VolumeI: Main Report).
