Objective: The proposed activity seeks to first develop new datasets that will enable the identification and prioritization of potential off-grid sites, and faster and more accurate market analysis for public and private stakeholders operating in Zambia. Datasets should include, for example, household locations and indicators on ability to pay, population density and proximity to the national grid, potential for productive uses of electricity and up-to-date data on national electricity grid transmission and distribution line locations. It is expected that these datasets then be used to narrow down geographic areas and priority villages that could be interesting markets for off-grid energy services.

Albania is in the process of establishing a Power Exchange. This is an important step for the future operation of the power sector in Albania and in line with the international obligations of the country vis-à-vis the Energy Community, and the recent MoU signed as part of the WB6 process. Creating a Day-Ahead Market is the natural starting point for liberalizing the power sector as this will allow for the regional integration with neighboring countries through market coupling. An organized day-ahead market remains however incomplete, without also the co-existence of a Balancing Market.
This project consists of all the technical, regulatory and legal support to develop, establish and operationalize a working Balancing Market for Albania. This is a very concise assignment taking into account the target dates: by 1 October 2017 to have the starting of the Dry-run phase and by 1 January 2018 the go live and initiation of commercial operation of the Balancing Market.
