Rich in renewable energy resources, yet Africa is not fully electrified.

Electrification is a catalyst for Socio-Economic development.

Challenges include:

  • The migration from traditional methods of electrification to digitalization.
  • Lack of competent policies and financing methods to deal with setbacks.
  • Innovation is growing faster and faster than policies can keep up. Policy-makers are playing “catch up”
  • Africa should not be a dumping ground for technologies that don’t work elsewhere.
  • How can Africa come up with standardized, sustainable solutions that are homebred?
  • The need for concessional financing for rural electrification needs solutions such as micro-grids.
