Introduction

to the project

objectives of paceaa
Objectives of PACEAA
  • identify policy, commercial and regulatory barriers that restrict the use of cleaner energy from agro-industries; for rural electrification, in selected countries, and propose ways of overcoming these barriers;
  • develop detailed policy and regulatory guidelines and incentives for adoption of cleaner energy from agro-industries into rural electrification programmes as well as incorporate the packages into local rural electrification plans.
  • enhance local and regional capacity of public institutions, private sector (financial institutions, agro-industries, rural stakeholders) for the effective utilisation of cogeneration and other cleaner energy systems from agro-industries in the rural electrification process;
context
Context
  • The PACEAA initiative is providing support to the Rural Electrification Components of the two UNEP/GEF projects: “Greening the Tea Industry in East Africa (GTIEA)” implemented by the East Africa Tea Trade Association (EATTA) and “Cogen for Africa” implemented by AFREPREN/FWD
  • PACEAA has been approved by the European Commission as part of the COOPENER programme, for a 3 year period, and runs from 1 September 2007 until 31 August 2010.
  • The support is in the form of technical expertise provided by UNEP Risoe Centre (Denmark) and IED (France).
key tasks 1 2
Key tasks (1/2)
  • Review of institutional frameworks, rural electrification targets and poverty reduction strategies in the 11 countries and world-wide experience ; needs assessment to improve regulatory frameworks
  • Selection of most mature 4 projects (out of the project with detailed FS carried out by GTIEA and COGEN) for detailed study of the rural electrification component:
    • Elaboration of business models, addressing financing and regulatory issues (ESCOs, Utility, Estate electrification,…)
    • Elaboration of local rural electrification plan, including data collection, load forecast, local grid development plan, costing, financial analysis, organisational set-up, discussion of the plan with stakeholders
    • Presentation / promotion of the rural electrification packages to potential donors, stimulation formation of user groups in beneficiary communities.
