LEAP Modeling workshop of the Energy transition core group in Senegal

The week, from Monday 13 to Thursday 16 November 2023, was a crucial step for the members of the Energy Transition Core Group, gathered at the Hotel Les Amaryllis (Saly) for an intensive training session on the LEAP energy modeling tool (Low Emission Analysis Platform). This initiative is an integral part of the ambitious project to co-construct low-carbon and climate-resilient development trajectories for Senegal. The event is part of the broader framework of the operationalization of the Emerging Senegal Plan 2 (PSE2) and the objectives of combating climate change expressed at the level of the Nationally Determined Contribution (CDN). Senegal, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MEDD) and the Ministry of Oil and Energy (MPE), signed a protocol with the French Development Agency (AFD) for the implementation of an initiative to co-construct a sustainable development strategy. The main objective of this four-day training session is to develop the expertise of members of the Energy Transition Core Group on the LEAP modeling tool. This includes familiarization with the software’s functionalities, carrying out practical modeling exercises, and initiation to the technical exercise of modeling the scenarios envisaged.
