Security of supply in East Africa

Eastern African Power Pool, EAPP, will each year going forward be designing a Power Balance Statement. This means compiling the balance between expected electricity consumption and production capacity for the next ten years. The balance must be made both nationally and regionally - which can clarify possible opportunities for improving security of supply through cooperation across national borders. The countries generally have strong growth in electricity consumption (7-9% p.a.) and only few strong transmission links between the countries. One of the challenges in the analysis is how hydropower and wind and sun should be included in the balance sheets.

There are 11 countries participating in EAPP: Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, DRC, Kenya and Tanzania.

The project is carried out for the World Bank by Tractebel (project manager), Energinet, and Ea Energy Analyses. The project will be implemented from November 2018 to August 2020.
