Electricity network existing and planned
In Sub-Saharan Africa, medium- and low-voltage data are often non-existent, uncompleted, or unavailable. This is a challenge for practitioners working on the electricity access agenda, power sector resilience or climate change adaptation. This layer presents the spatial extent of the existing and planned electricity grid (high, medium, low voltage level) compiled using multiple sources that enumerate elements of the existing transmission and distribution network.
