ANALYSIS OF POLICY OPTIONS FOR PROJECTS IN THE ELECTRICITY SECTOR IN SUB SAHARAN AFRICA: A SYSTEM DYNAMICS APPROACH

Noah Omondi Ogano, Leon Pretorius

Abstract


Many projects in the electricity energy sector in the Sub Saharan Africa region experience quality challenges and delays, leading to frequent power outages that slow the overall economic activity in the region and frustrate investor confidence in the region. This paper presents the systemic methods employed to evaluate the dynamic consequences of policies in the electricity energy sector projects in the region. The model uses the Vensim software to carry out the simulations. A range of illustrative scenarios are provided and analysed, and the paper compares and contrasts these different scenarios.
