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 industrialise in a viable manner, a revolution in the power and related infrastructure sector is inevitable.
The Sub-Saharan Africa Power Trends report provides an overview of the current power situation across the region, focusing on current and future demand, investment trends, key constraints, the optimal energy mix and opportunities across the power sector in Africa.
