As part of the Green Mini-Grid Market Development Program (GMG MDP) in particular for one of its areas of work the "Market Intelligence Business Line", the CLUB-ER in partnership with CARBON TRUST develops a map of the mini-network in Africa.
The definition given to the Green Mini-Grid (GMG) is the isolated power grid powered by renewable or hybrid energies - less than 10MW power, to electrify households, productive uses and public services in rural areas.
This map (available for 18 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa) useful for promoters of mini-network projects and technical and financial partners. It will not duplicate the efforts of ESMAP, IRENA or other development partners to identify renewable energy localities.
The database is dynamic; it is planned to update the data regularly. Thus, the base is open and each of the actors can inform it for this update.
NOTE: 283 localities listed in the database do not yet have coordinates and will be shown on the map later.
