Welcome to the PyPSA meets Africa documentation!

PyPSA meets Africa is a free and open source software project aiming to develop a powerful energy system model for Africa and beyond. The tool is currently under development and will be heavily based on PyPSA and PyPSA-Eur. A short presentation about our project and its aims is given on our website. There you can also sign-up to our Newsletter.

Watch our latest discussion with African leaders about Open Energy System Modelling in Africa: State of the Art and Future Opportunities. Let’s work together for a better future.
