Toolbox for Renewable Energy Tariff Design

Client Challenge
Development of a Toolbox for Renewable Energy Tariff Design for EUEI PDF/GiZ.

Tangible impact

  • The toolbox was then used to support regulators, ministries and utilities to calculate renewable tariffs in two countries (The Gambia and Cabo Verde). The process was used to validate and improve the models.
  • In Cabo Verde, we applied the UNDP De-risking Renewable Energy Investment methodology to test the impact of different policy options on the cost of capital.
  • Training was delivered to over 60 key stakeholders from ECOWAS ministries, regulatory agencies and utilities representing all 15 Member States.

Our approach
MRC Group developed a toolbox consisting of several standard tariff models to calculate tariffs for renewable energy technologies. Models from the toolbox will be successfully adapted and used to calculate renewable energy tariffs for the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) member States. The model covers Renewable Energy IPPs, Distributed Generation and Mini-grids.
