Planning for the clean energy transition adds a new level of complexity to the governance of the scenario planning process. IRENA’s Long-Term Energy Scenario (LTES) Network aims to strengthen capacity in such processes and the underlying modelling methodologies.
Following a successful webinar series dedicated to the Latin American and Caribbean region, IRENA will now host a series of virtual exchanges on “Long-term Energy Scenarios (LTES) for Developing National Energy Transition Plans in Africa”.
IRENA will deliver the series in collaboration with a range of regional implementation partners. Next to GET.transform, this includes the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD), the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Ministry of Energy of Kenya, and the African Union Commission.
Featuring speakers from African countries and regional Power Pools that have well-established scenario-based planning practices, each event will highlight experiences from two countries. The first seminar (29 November, 12:00pm GMT+3) will provide best practies from Kenya and Egypt with the following speakers:
- Grace Njeru, Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO), Kenya
- Hala Ramadan, Director of Economic & Environment Studies Department, New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA), Egypt

The virtual session will be moderated by
