Sustainable Energy Planning

Energy planning is the process of developing long-range policies to help guide the future of regional and national energy strategies. Sustainable energy planning is the approach of planning for the energy sector in a proper, careful, safe and responsible way. 

We fully understand and support energy development as a mean to grow economies and provide social advancement. However, traditional models of energy development are based on more energy supply and consumption. In many places around the world these models have led to environmental degradation and are no longer viable. Our approach is to use energy planning tools and focus on energy solutions that fully integrate environmental considerations with demand-side management through energy efficiency, conservation strategies, renewable resources and low or less carbon intensive technologies. 

Factus team has extensive experience in energy planning and sustainability analysis. We bring over 20 years of experience working at various positions with governments in West Africa and international organizations such as the World Bank and FAO. We’ve helped governments design energy strategies, review national energy policies, promote Liquefied Petroleum Gas and implement sustainable energy systems such as biofuels (ethanol), solar and wind energy.

Our sustainable energy expert has held various high level positions in the Senegalese government, acting as Director of Energy with the responsibility of implementing energy policies and strategies across the country. A few energy projects implemented under his leadership include the World Bank Regional Program for the Traditional Energy Sector RPTES and the PBE (Programme Biomasse Energie/ UEMOA).
