As Africa’s population rapidly increases and urbanises, its need for a reliable and sustainable energy supply has become greater than ever. Developing energy scenarios for African
cities can provide a good basis for guiding cities’ policy-making, planning and investment decisions towards more resilient, affordable, secure and sustainable energy futures.

This Synthesis Report is based on the data analysis and modelling technical reports that were developed for four African cities, namely, Kampala (Uganda), Tsévié (Togo), Yaoundé IV1 (Cameroon) and Bouaké (Côte d’Ivoire). In each of these reports, energy models and projections were developed in order to:

1) understand the city’s current energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions breakdown, and

2) to explorewhat their energy landscape might look like by 2030 under business-as-usual scenarios as well as alternative, low-carbon scenarios. These reports were developed as part of the Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) initiative, to support the development of Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans (SEACAPs) in the four cities.
