JRC-TEMBA - African decarbonisation pathways

  • 1. KTH Royal Institute of Technology


This dataset underpins the report provided to the project JRC-TEMBA - African decarbonisation pathways.

The report provides insights into energy supply and demand, power generation, investments and total system costs, water consumption and withdrawal as well as carbon dioxide emissions for the African continent.

The energy supply systems of forty-seven African countries are modelled individually and connected via gas and electricity trade links to identify the cost-optimal solution to satisfy each country´s total final energy demand for the period 2015-2065. In this analysis, The Electricity Model Base for Africa (TEMBA) was extended to include a simple representation of the full energy system. It was also updated to include new data. It is run using the medium- to long-term Open Source Energy Modelling System tool (OSeMOSYS).

The TEMBA model produces aggregate energy, and detailed power system results in each country in the African continent. The power sector results are also reported with power pool aggregation.

The OSeMOSYS model and input data used to produce these results can be found at
