Large-Scale Renewable Energy Power Development Opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa
This research service focuses on the opportunities offered by the renewable energy (RE) power sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. The study identifies countries with the highest opportunities in terms of RE resources, combined with a series of other factors such as the countries’ regulatory, political, and economic landscapes.
Hydropower has been excluded from the scope of this study as certain countries, especially the ones suffering from severe droughts, are trying to diversify their electricity generation mix to include more non-hydro renewable energy sources, which are less prone to climatic changes. Bioenergy potential should also not be underestimated, but was not included in the scope as it is difficult to quantify the bioenergy potential of each country as compared to wind and solar.
