    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Kiribati

      Kiribati has identified a need for clear medium-term targets for fuel import reduction, and to complement these by scaling up renewables in its energy mix. Small scale off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have been in use since the 1970s, but experience in large-scale grid-connected solar PV applications is limited, necessitating capacity building for Kiribati’s move towards energy independence.

    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Ghana

      Ghana has one of Africa’s highest rates of access to electricity. In 2014 this was estimated at 72%, with over 87% in urban areas and nearly 50% in rural areas. The country also exports power to its neighbours, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. The Ghanaian power industry is unbundled, comprising generation utilities, transmission and distribution companies, and independent power producers.

    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Djibouti

      Djibouti faces critical challenges with power generation and distribution. Heavy reliance on fossil-fuel imports keeps the country exposed to price volatility, constraining economic development plans. But significant geothermal, wind and solar energy resources could be developed to extend reliable electricity supply throughout the country, meeting the twin concerns of energy access and energy security.
