Abstract
Energy access has been identified as critical to economic development and the improvement of millions of people's standard of living. Despite significant efforts in recent years, it is estimated that more than 1 billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity. For electricity planning in South Sudan, this study investigated two types of power grid systems: centralised and distributed systems. This project confirms, through statistical analysis and interviews with engineers and policymakers, that a hybrid approach of both systems is the best option for building a national power grid. These findings only reflect the preliminary case and situation in South Sudan, where the electricity sector and infrastructure are in their nascent stages.
