As the CLSG countries and TRANSCO CLSG get set to start trading electricity early next year, the World Bank believes that exchanging of knowledge and of best practices on doing the Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and Transmission Service Agreement (TSAs) could enrich the framework of reference for the countries soon to engage into exchanges of electricity through the CLSG transmission line.
Meanwhile, a high-level two-day workshop to brainstorm on this issue has kicked off in Monrovia under the auspices of the World Bank, in collaboration with the West African Power Pool (WAPP), on Friday, July 5, 2019. The workshop on the PPAs and TSAs contracts for the supply and transportation of electricity for the countries participating in the CLSG Regional Power interconnection project will concludes Saturday, July 6, 2019.
The Bank, which is a major financier of the CLSG interconnection project has invited the Management of TRANSCO CLSG to the workshop, which is part of the World Bank and WAPP’s support for the development of an efficient regional energy trade in West Africa. The workshop targets the evolution of the electricity sector in the West African sub region.
