Enabling more renewables and better electricity supply in Cape Verde
Advisory Services to Elaborate the Cape Verde Smart Grid Roadmap
Cabo Verde has set ambitious targets for renewables alongside improving security and quality of service. There is a consensus that adopting Smart Grid solutions is the key towards energy transition in the country.
For this reason, a Smart Grid Roadmap has been developed by AF Mercados, to coordinate the stakeholders’ visions and activities for Smart Grid deployment strategy, including the following services:

Development a short, medium and long-term roadmap for Smart Grid implementations in the country, including concrete actions and responsibilities, together with a monitoring and evaluation framework.
The Project has finished with the development of a complete set of project fiches for high priority Smart Grid deployments including detailed cost-benefit analysis, implementation plans and the result evaluation KPIs.
Smart Grid activities
Technological Smart Grid initiatives to provide solutions to the identified problems in Cabo Verde (based on the technology variables detected in country’s current status)
A set of Island clusters has been defined to identify the applicability of the Smart Grid initiatives for different islands, mapping the technology solutions to the clusters according to the different needs
The Regulatory requirements to facilitate the implementation of the technological Smart Grid initiatives have been defined and shared with the Regulation entities
Other factors, like organizational requirements of the national utility company and social participation, have been analysed and shared for their parallel implementation for the smooth transition to the Smart Grid initiatives proposed
Also, a series of discussions and capacity building activities has been developed with all stakeholders, to assure the optimum information diffusion and the best future Project development
