"Interactively explore least cost electrification strategies and contextual investment scenarios for 46 countries around the world."

The Global Electrification Platform (GEP) is an open access, interactive, online platform that allows for overview of electrification investment scenarios for a selection of countries. The scenarios present pathways for achieving universal electricity access, split into an intermediate strategy for 2025 and full electrification by 2030.

This platform allows you to explore 216 different scenarios to meet these electricity access goals, with different combinations and parameters presented in the form of "levers". You may then overlay additional layers as well (e.g. wind potential, electricity networks, location of health facilities) to help illustrate useful contextual information about any selected country.

The Global Electrification Platform (GEP) was jointly developed by The World Bank Group, the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The current set of results in the GEP were additionally created using the Open Source Spatial Electrification Tool, accessible here.
