The Malawi Integrated Energy Planning Tool is an online, publicly available, interactive, and user-friendly data visualization platform that equips Malawian policy makers and energy practitioners with data and insights to make informed decisions on strategies and operations to advance energy access in the country.
The tool is powered by extensive geospatial analytics and modelling and provides actionable intelligence for the private sector and government stakeholders to plan the expansion of least-cost access to electricity, access to clean cooking, health-facility electrification and medical cold-chain energy assessment in the context of a national COVID-19 vaccination rollout. The tool presents interactive and downloadable data from Malawi based on integrated energy planning analyses to achieve universal energy access in the country by 2030.
Malawi Integrated Energy Plan
The Malawi Integrated Energy Plan is a detailed Malawian geospatial energy access analysis, the results of which are accessible via the Malawi Integrated Energy Planning Tool, developed by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy, Malawi, with support from Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet and The Rockefeller Foundation.
In 2022, SEforALL collaborated with the Ministry of Energy, Malawi to develop an updated Malawi Integrated Energy Plan. This analysis represents a truly integrated energy plan, incorporating the requirements for universal residential and institutional electrification, access to clean cooking, electrification of healthcare facilities and modelling for vaccination rollout. The analysis considers a suite of supply-side solutions, including the grid, mini-grids, solar home systems (SHS), electric cooking, biogas, briquettes, bio-ethanol, along with a variety of demand-side factors, such as affordability, to identify pathways and opportunities for expanding energy access.
