Prospects for the African power sector: scenarios and strategies for Africa Project
1st January 2012
Topic(s): Renewables, Economics
This paper provides early insights for the power sector in Africa. This analysis for Africa’s power sector focuses on the period to 2030, with an outlook to 2050 to examine long-term issues that have an impact on investment decisions in the near future.
Other IRENA work projects, such as those on renewable power generation costs, are essential inputs into the analysis presented here.
Two scenarios are analysed: the Reference scenario and the Renewable scenario. The Reference scenario explores a continuation of ongoing energy sector trends while the Renewable scenario examines the impact of policies in Africa to actively promote the transition to a renewable-based electricity system.
