Digital planning for the off-grid energy sector
How digital planning tools significantly de-risk and accelerate electrification efforts.
This report details how emerging digital planning tools and platforms hold the promise to significantly de-risk and accelerate electrification efforts. A key driver for this development is the growth of high-quality, large-scale datasets such as satellite imagery, IoT sensor data and smartphone based surveys along with the increase in available computing power and analytics methods.
One of the emerging tools covered in this report is Village Data Analytics (VIDA), TFE Energy's digital energy access planning platform (more information available here).
