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.
