Objective: Based on a financial and economic analysis of different technology options, forecasted energy demand and energy resource potentials, the proposed activity will use proven methodologies to spatially identify and prioritize areas that should be electrified either: (i) by extension of the national grid, based on the national governments generation and transmission development plans (including plans for imports); or (ii) through the provision of decentralized energy systems such as mini grids (diesel, hybrid diesel-renewables or renewables -especially small hydro-) and individual systems (e.g. solar home systems and appliances). It will provide three main outputs: (i) capacity development by working closely with Afghan government ministries as partners; (ii) detailed short-term (less than five years) plan for five provinces that will consist of investment options based on detailed power sector planning in several provinces; and (iii) country-wide prospectus using the detailed provincial prospectus, describing detailed steps for how it could be extrapolated to a country-wide plan.
