Description :
In 1989, the Cameroon Department of Energy began work on an energy sector master plan covering : conventional power sector, petroleum, energy management, energy efficiency and renewable sources of energy. IED was requested to provide support to the Cameroon team in the latter sector.
   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Description of the Actual Services Provided In this framework, IED :
* assessed the status of technological solutions already developed in Cameroon during the 80s (photovoltaic, methanisation, biomass utilisation, micro-hydro power, agro industrial waste...),
* evaluated the potential of the energies in different sectors (agro-industry, housing, decentralised electrification...),
* selected some viable short term applications,
* submitted proposals for further development of these solutions,
* analysed the results of an 8 000 household level survey on traditional and modern energy consumption patterns.
Data available at the Cameroon Department of Energy was collected and organised. IED helped design a comprehensive analytical framework.
A seminar was held in Yaounde in 1990 to conclude this work where IED described the prospects of decentralised electrification in Cameroon.
