Description of the Actual Services Provided IED organized the scope of work along the following tasks and corresponding outputs:
Phase 1 – First Order Geospatial Analysis
T1 – Data collection and preparation of GIS data layers
T2 – Spatial characterizations of population settlement concentrations, nucleation patterns, and indicative capex per new connection (urban and rural)
Phase 2 - Potential Least-cost options and investment requirements for achieving universal access using the GEOSIM tool; insights from international experience and best practice
T3 – Development of model for estimates for least-cost electrification options analysis
T4 – Potential least-cost options for grid-based densification and extension
T5 – Potential least-cost options for isolated networks (mini-grids) and standalone systems
T6 – Sensitivity analysis
T7 – Capacity building
