Emerging Renewable Energy Technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa

Summary

The region of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has huge renewable energy potential that has the capability to supplement its rising power demand. SSA is expected to grow rapidly in terms of economic development, population and power consumption. Africa, which houses about 13% of the world's population, produces only 3% of its electricity, to which less than 30% of its population has access. Although electrification levels are low, demand for power continues to outstrip availability, which can be largely attributed to significant population growth, expected to double by 2050. Having recognized the huge potential for renewable energy technologies, various countries’ governments have formulated plans to take advantage of it. Some countries are home to several rivers and geothermal sites that have strong power generation potential, but most receive hours of sunlight and wind speeds for power generation.
