WAPP Power System Mapping, a collaboration between IED and the World Bank

Commissionned by the World Bank, IED maps ECOWAS electricity systems in 2022 within GIS web application.

In total, it is more than 200 installed power plants representing nearly 27 GW, 580 source stations and 1000 stransmission lines which have been georeferenced. A part of the MV distribution networks has also been integrated into the platform.

This dynamic online tool aims to facilitate access to information from the World Bank in order to establish regional investment programs in production and transport infrastructure.

National indicators also make it possible to monitor the evolution of renewable energies in the regional mix and thus, the energy transition by country.

IED Consult is “investing in sustainable energy statistics in Africa” alongside the African Energy Commission and national governments!


Addis Ababa, 12-14 September 2022

In September, IED Consult had the honor of facilitating an international workshop hosted by the African Energy Commission (AFREC) in Addis Ababa on the theme “Investing in Sustainable Energy Statistics in Africa” The workshop was held in the framework of a major AFREC support program designed to reinforce or establish national energy information systems and improve the quality and coverage of energy statistics in African Union (AU) member states.


AFREC launched the pilot phase of the program in January 2022 for a cohort of countries (Algeria, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Congo, Gabon, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, Nigeria and Zimbabwe), and will extend the support to additional member states in 2023. As the implementation partner for the program, IED Consult has worked with the commission and national stakeholders over the past ten months to perform a detailed multi-criteria assessment of national energy statistics programs and develop an Energy Statistics Diagnostic and Action Plan for each participating country. IED Consult’s experts were also responsible for designing and delivering six online training modules targeting key skills gaps identified in the diagnostics.

The workshop gathered energy statisticians and data management experts from the participating countries, observers from other member states, and representatives from AFREC, with the objective to discuss the Diagnostic and Action Plan reports and exchange on implementation requirements, common themes, and challenges. In addition to a dedicated session on each country’s Diagnostic and Action Plan, the agenda also included thematic panel discussions and collective problem-solving sessions on topics including:

  • Primary data collection for bio-energy and energy end uses using surveys
  • Designing and financing an Energy Information System project
  • Dissemination of energy statistics and stakeholder engagement
  • Training and support requirements for building sustainable statistics programs
  • Developing and animating a community of practice for African energy statisticians

The workshop resulted in the technical validation of all ten Diagnostic and Action Plan reports and recommendations for national governments, AFREC and other regional and international partners to support implementation of the action plans. The reports and recommendations will be presented for adoption at the Second Ministerial Meeting on Sustainable Energy Statistics and Data Management in Africa on October 24th, 2022.

Signed on February 2, 2021 between CGECI and AFD, SUNREF Côte d'Ivoire is a loan scheme to finance Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy projects led by private sector actors in Côte d'Ivoire.

The SUNREF program implemented over a period of 3 years, is financed by the European Union up to 2.5 million euros or 1,625 billion FCFA, to fulfill the needs of green finance to enable Côte d'Ivoire to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 30% and to increase to 45% the share of renewable energies in the Ivorian energy mix in compliance to the Paris Agreements on the climate.

Officially inaugurated on July 7, 2022 in Abidjan, the SUNREF program, green finance label, aims while financing investments in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, to create jobs and promote economic growth.

Let's preserve the climate and the environment : let's offset our carbon emissions!

CTradeTravel in the countries of IED intervention, although still relatively reduced by certain restrictions related to Covid-19, has nevertheless generated the emission of 74 Tons of CO2 for the year 2021.

In favour of environmental and climate protection, IED has decided to offset its carbon emissions for the year 2021. This carbon offset process consists in participating to projects to reduce impact of greenhouse gases. This year IED supports the REDD+ project in Mai Ndombe certified by Climate Trade, project aiming to safeguard 300,000 hectares of forest in the Democratic Republic of Congo.


The supported project aims to reduce the main causes of forest and biodiversity loss and charts a new path for community prosperity through comprehensive investments in surrounding local communities, which are among the poorest in the world. These investments include the construction and renovation of schools, the provision of health services (such as access to immunizations), support for food security and nutrition (including agricultural diversification), and the establishment of capacity-building activities to empower local communities.

And you ? What projects and actions do you carry out to offset your carbon emissions ?
