Economic, social and environmental impact assessment in Republic of Guinea
CbI's African Energy has carried out an in-depth study for an international finance institution to quantify the economic, social and environmental impacts of electricity supply in the Guinean capital of Conakry. For the project, CbI partnered with an international polling company and a well-known environmental consultancy.
The project included:
study of existing levels of electricity generation, supply and demand;
overview of the state and extent of the country’s transmission and distribution networks;
analysis of the financial challenges facing the sector;
extensive field work including the canvassing of over 120 consumers of electricity in the commercial, health and education sectors;
production of several case studies based on interviews with electricity consumers ranging from market sellers to cement factories, and
assessment of the greenhouse gas emissions of on-grid thermal power plants and the usage of private generation in commercial and residential settings.
