Derived map of global electricity transmission and distribution lines

Description: 

Overview:

Global results from gridfinder model, produced by ESMAP based on joint work with Facebook and others. Uses night-time lights, road networks and existing grid network data to predict the location of transmission and distribution lines globally. Validated in several countries with ~70% accuracy at 1 km.

US, Romania, Jamaica and India - META tool: Inputs Transmission Distribution

Description: 

Contains information about each delivery technology for US, Romania, Jamaica and India. base year: 2010.

This information is used as input in the Model for Electricity Technology Assessment (META) tool.

META yields levelized costs for generation, transmission, and distribution for each electricity supply technology option from a relatively few input parameters. One of the features of META is that it allows for integration of environmental externalities, such as local pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Users can easily see the cost of adding or expanding generation from a...
