As Africa’s economy continues to grow, access to sustainable and affordable sources of energy to meet rising demand for power will become increasingly crucial to maintaining sound and consistent economic growth, as well as to improving the livelihoods of all Africans. The African continent is endowed with abundant fossil fuels and sources of renewable energy, which gives policymakers in the region a choice when considering the appropriate energy mix for their respective countries.

Over the next decade, the scale and composition of the new generation capacity installed on the continent will inform the sustainability of Africa’s economic development. It is therefore crucial that key stakeholders are equipped with accurate and reliable information, data and analyses regarding Africa’s energy landscape and generation potential.
