Mapping a Path Towards Universal Access

The Liberia National Electrification Analysis Project

Building a Foundation

Funded by the World Bank, and in close partnership with the Government of Liberia, the NRECA International team implemented the Libera National Electrification Analysis (NEA) project to prepare a framework to support increased electricity access in the country. This effort will contribute to the government’s aim to accelerate the pace of electrification, lower the cost, and increase the impact of investment, infrastructure construction, and connections. 

The NEA project will provide the basis for the design, planning and implementation of the Government of Liberia’s National Electrification Strategy. This will include determining funding sources and required institutional framework to strengthen and expand existing on-grid electric service, as well as addressing electrification needs of communities that are beyond this reach.

The outcome of the NEA project will enable the Government of Liberia – through its Ministry of Mines and Energy, Rural and Renewable Electrification Agency, the Liberia Electricity Corporation and other stakeholders in the sector, to efficiently and effectively plan for the ultimate goal: Full electricity access for all Liberians.


The Outcome

A web visualization tool consisting of 10 maps that displays the geospatial results of the project. This framework evaluates the outcome of least-cost electrification options that include densification, intensification, and expansion options for on-grid electrification in urban and rural areas of Liberia.

Powerful Opportunities

The Government of Liberia now has the foundation to design, plan and implement its National Electrification Strategy. The Liberia National Electrification Analysis Project is providing the framework to strengthen and expand existing on-grid electric service, and address electrification needs of communities that are beyond this reach.
