Addendum to the Afghanistan Power Sector Master Plan: Technical Assistance Completion Report
sector: Energy | country: Afghanistan
Afghanistan, and the other countries in the region, have limited capacity to produce credible energy forecast. The Master Plan modeling was based on energy forecast data that were made available to the consultants by the different governments. In the case of Afghanistan the forecast was based on 22 months of incomplete data (March 2010 January 2011) from the regions grouped into the 34 provinces. The Master Plan and its addendum relied on the basic forecast data (best available data at the time). Capacity building needs to be an ongoing process and build into future projects. The conclusion of the study will improve as the underlying data quality improves.
