Investing in sustainable long-term energy projects

While Africa hosts six of the world’s ten fastest-growing economies, 550 million Africans are still without access to electricity. There is less than 40% electrification, but the continent is endowed with vast solar, hydro, wind, and geothermal resources. Most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are short of power. Southern Africa, which has the most advanced regional power system, is currently experiencing acute power shortages. Supported by widespread liberation of the electricity sector, the case for investing in Africa’s energy infrastructure has become compelling.
