Methodology, Data, and Scenario Development

  • Nnaemeka Vincent Emodi
Part of the Frontiers in African Business Research book series (FABR)


This chapter is divided into three sections; the first section presents model used in this study, the reason for the selection of the model, and the algorithm of the LEAP and OSeMOSYS model. The second section describes the LEAP and OSeMOSYS data requirement, explains the data collection process, parameters, variables, and presents the datasets used in the development of the Nigeria LEAP Model. The last subsection explains the scenario development techniques, processes, and extensively discusses each scenario developed.
