The inadequacy of Power Supply in Sub-Saharan Africa Makes it a Unique Market that Offers both Transformative Potential and Attractive Investment Opportunity

Sub-Saharan Africa, a region known for its significant wealth in natural resources is amongst the fastest emerging markets in the world. But fall well short from other similar growing markets when it comes to economic prosperity. Electricity plays a very crucial role in economic growth.

In fact, there exists a direct correlation between economic growth and electricity supply and if Sub-Saharan African countries need to see faster economic growth, then they must focus on developing its power sector. There are three aspects of power sector supporting national development of any economy - availability, accessibility and affordability. In the case of Africa, accessibility is a major concern.

It is pertinent to note that only 35-40% of the total population in Africa has access to electricity. A primary cause for such poor quality of supply and low electrification rates lies with weak power networks. Addressing these challenges will require new approaches to development and funding into the power transmission sector of the country.

Since a large funding gap is already affecting Sub-Saharan Africa's power sector, this development cannot be done by country's public sector alone and hence brings a great opportunity for scaling up the private participation and investments from the private channels.

Business Case for Power Transmission Sector in Africa

  • Transmission network expansion to witness investments from private players to the tune of USD 3.2 Billion to USD 4.3 Billion annually between 2016-2040
  • South Africa power utility Eskom, has announced plans to add about 6,500 km of high-voltage transmission lines and
  • 46000 MVA of transformer capacity by 2028
  • Nigeria plans to add over 190 new projects to boost power transmission, generation and distribution
  • Africa targets to provide electrical connections to about 60 million new households by 2030
  • About 5000 ckt. Kms of transmission line network targeted to be installed by 2030
  • Africa targets to increase electricity generation capacity by 30,000 MW
  • East African countries projects to witness peak demand/supply surplus of 3,430 MW by 2025
  • Kenya Power & Lighting Company plans to invest USD 15 Million on projects to improve electricity supply in the country by 2019
  • South Africa's power utility Eskom is set to expand its transmission network after ADB approved financial assistance of USD 218 Million
