The second annual Energy Modelling Platform for Africa (EMP-A 19) was held in Ethiopia from January 14-29 with a more than two-week intensive training after the successful launch of the initiative in January 2018 in Addis Ababa. The EMP-A is an annual event jointly organized by United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the World Bank, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Department for International Development (DFID), University of Cape Town, KTH and the OpTIMUS Community together with a number of African and international partners. It provides an excellent opportunity to bring together the energy planning and modelling community in Africa to share experiences, models and data in climate, land, energy and water systems. In emphasizing the role of models in policy making, Mr. Holger Rogner of the OpTIMUS Community said that models can only effectively inform energy planning if there is a strong two-way communication between modelers and policy makers through a strong model Mustapha Jallab and Ron Kamwendo presented the work of the ECA’s African Institute of Economic Development and Planning’s (IDEP) flagship modular capacity development programme on energy demand and supply management.
