1 ENERGY AND DEVELOPMENT: Geopolitics and Research Morgan D. Bazilian, Ph.D. IIEA, Dublin, Eire, May 17, 2016

2 Scope and Scale Investment Geopoli cs & Security Research

4 No Longer a Triangle ( all of the above is difficult)

5 Energy is Eternal Delight William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1793 Lighting Heating/cooling Refrigeration Pumping Transport Motors We mostly take these for granted or assume their availability in wealthy countries. It is a very different situation in poor countries.

6 Energy and development: The golden thread A basis for security: migration, urbanization, equality Impacts on environment: air pollution (indoor and outdoor), climate change A foundation for economic activity across the economy Essential for social development: public health, education, food security, water services +Imminently doable : the physics in New York and Paris, the same as in Dhaka and Addis.


8 UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative One Goal: Achieving Sustainable Energy for All by 2030 Three Targets:

9 Access deficit almost three times as large for non-solid fuels as for electricity 2.9 billion 1.1 billion Cooking access deficit Electricity access deficit Roughly 600m without access in SSA now: projected to be 700m in 2030 (IEA). Only region going up in absolute terms. Without South Africa, the total SSA capacity is a mere 34 GW, equivalent to the installed capacity of Argentina. Manufacturing enterprises experience power outages on an average of 56 days per year; costs 6-16% of GDP.

10 Energy moving to Developing Economies Total power system investment is estimated at USD 16.9 trillion. Non-OECD countries account for 60% of cumulative investment. IEA WEO 2014

11 Inequity

12 Non-linear growth needed (more than a light big markets)

13 Additional frameworks for access to energy for: Household cooking Productive engagements Community Infrastructure Multi-tier Framework

14 In Kinshasa DRC, conventional access is 90%, but adjusting for service deficiencies score drops to 30%

15 Precedent of household electrification USA Mexico Mauritius China Brazil Thailand India UK Egypt South Africa 100 Percentage population with electricity access Source: Pachauri et al., 2011: Energy Access for Development. In: The Global Energy Assessment: Toward a More Sustainable Future. IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria

16 Innovation, technology and planning Nigeria Ethiopia Source: IEA in collaboration with the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, division of Energy Systems Analysis. In Nigeria, higher population density favours on-grid supply Low population density in Ethiopia means show mini- and off-grid solutions

17 Environmental Trade-offs? International Energy Agency (IEA): Universal modern energy access does not have any significant impact on energy or climate security It depends cookstoves or modern ovens and dishwashers

18 Sustainable Energy for All initiative One Goal: Achieving Sustainable Energy for All by 2030 Three Targets:

19 Investment flows need to triple to achieve the necessary pace of progress

20 Our new estimates Our medium estimate is roughly equivalent to other literature, including the World Energy Outlook The large disparity between our high scenario and the available literature is mostly due to the significantly higher assumption on per capita electricity use. That high per capita electricity use assumption is still roughly half of the average of today s North African demand so still nearly an order of magnitude lower than an OECD average Cummulative cost [billion USD] Cooking 0 Own estimates (high) Own estimates (medium) Own estimates (low) Pachauri et al 2013 IEA 2012 Riahi et al 2012 IEA 2011 IEA et al AGECC 2010 Electricity

21 Current flows are not being utilised entirely

22 Readiness for Investment

26 Oil, Governance, Aid, and Access (an evolving story) Angola Cameroon Electrification LPG Chad Congo Côte d'ivoire Equatorial Guinea Gabon Mozambique Nigeria Sudan Billion dollars (2007) The $18 billion needed for access to electricity and to clean cooking stoves and cylinders, is a mere 0.4% of the government take from oil and gas export revenues in

27 Flaring and planning About 140 billion cubic meters annually Enough to produce 750 billion kwh power More than the entire power consumption on the African continent currently

28 Natural gas and Africa Optimal transmission pipeline network and gas cost at city gate for the baseline scenario. Based on the estimated gas demand for 2050 and a gas production cost of $3/MMBtu. It is assumed that 1300 Bcf/year is exported from Matola(Southern Mozambique) to South Africa. The required investment is estimated at $56.7 Billion. Estimated potential natural gas demand in sub-saharan Africa by 2050.

29 Security and Geopolitics as Impetus and Lens Providing energy services in the poorest countries can lower the risk of internal unrest and reduce the movement of people across borders.

30 Towards a research agenda 1. How do we link energy and development issues firmly wider governance and security issues? 2. How to improve power planning methodologies, especially in fragile and conflict states under deep uncertainty? 3. How to respond to the challenges related to linkages with other sectors such as water and food security? 4. How to best understand links to natural gas and energy access? 5. How are the worlds financial institutions investing in the energy sector in developing countries, under what rules, and what rule-making?
