Sub-Saharan Africa Power Trends
Power Disruption in Africa
Unreliable, insufficient and costly power generation and distribution across the African continent has arguably been the Achilles heel to higher and more inclusive growth and socio-economic development of the region. Infrastructure stock levels have impeded rather than facilitated growth and development. This is changing rapidly, as, in order for Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to develop and industrialize in a viable manner, a revolution in the power and related infrastructure sector is inevitable.
We are delighted to introduce the inaugural annual Sub-Saharan Africa power trends report to the market. This report takes a snapshot view of several Sub-Saharan African (SSA) markets and share some of the developments specifically relating to the trends that Deloitte sees as emerging ‘disruptors’ in the SSA power sector, presenting new opportunities for power companies in today’s challenging economic climate.
This report is a summary of the consolidated point of view of the Deloitte power leaders across Africa, backed by research.
