Grid emission factor for West African Power Pool (WAPP) approved by the UNFCCC

The West African Power Pool (WAPP) grid emission factor Standardized Baseline (SBL) has been approved by the UNFCCC. The feasibility study and baseline development of the WAPP SBL was managed and carried out by Climate Focus with their partner, Ecosur Afrique, under an UNEP DTU assignment to introduce and promote a grid emission factor among the ECOWAS countries in order to boost the development of carbon mitigation projects in West Africa.

More information can be found about the study under our projects and on the UNFCCC website.
