The Quest To Power Africa: Green Energy

In terms of population and land mass Africa is the second largest continent in the world, trailing only behind Asia. But Amazingly, the majority of the billion people living on the continent survive with little to no access electricity. This on a continent unsurpassed by none for its natural resources, and untapped renewable energy potential ranging from solar, wind, geothermal, and hydro power sources. As Africa rises with rapid economic growth, the race to power Africa, has begun in earnest and clean and renewable energy are playing a major role.

Skyrocketing Demand For Energy

Rapid development requires reliable energy

Demand For Energy

Compared to other parts of the world, energy deprivation or the lack of access to energy is most prevalent by far in Africa. Access to the electricity in many Sub-Saharan countries is less than 10%. Recent trends indicate that over 60% of Sub-Saharan Africans will still not have access to electricity by 2020.

Vast Energy Resources

Africa holds vast renewable energy sources.

Energy Resources

Africa is endowed with vast renewable sources of energy. The continent receives abundant
solar radiation through the year, and recent studies have confirmed the availability of abundant wind energy resources along some of the coastal and specific inland areas of Africa.

Renewed Policy Support

Increased Support policies for renewable energy

Policy Support

In Africa, support policies for renewable energy technologies have increased dramatically over the last decade and continue to evolve in positive direction. Policies to promote the development of renewable energy generation have been undertaken by numerous African nations.
  • Energy demand in sub-Saharan Africa grew by around 45% from 2000 to 2014, but accounts for only 4% of the world total, despite being home to 13% of the global population.
  • On-grid power generation capacity was 90 GW in 2012, with expected growth of up to 150 GW in the coming years.
  • Africa is particularly rich in solar energy potential, with most of the continent enjoying an average of more than 320 days per year of bright sunlight and experiencing radiation levels of almost 2 kWh per square metre (kWh/m2) annually.
  • Sub-Saharan Africa has untapped renewable resources which could deliver levels of supply in excess of domestic consumption to 2040 and far beyond.
  • The African power sector is expected to see rapid growth of renewables-based capacity thru 2040, which grows from around 20GW to nearly 170GW. Renewables account for more than 50% of the increase in total capacity over the projection period.
