Our March 2022 Issue Focuses on the Transition
Agendas lay out opportunities, especially when they are presented by governments. Africa’s leaders at several levels have lamented the developed world’s declaration against fossil fuels. But what are they proposing?
Too many rural African women are dying from health challenges thrown up by charcoal fume inhalation, the leaders argue. But where is the master plan for LPG deployment? Gas is still required to fire our power plants, African governments exclaim. But how many of them have clear directions for monetisation of these molecules in power plants?
African leaders struggle with visions to deliver energy for all. They talk about banning energy poverty in the press. But privately, they moan: ‘where is the market’? This is largely the reason why most hydrocarbon development projects on the continent are for export.
Having said that, what is the state of play of the renewable energy market on the continent? Are South Africa and Egypt still leading? Or has the race track become very crowded? In this second annual issue of our AFRICA in The GLOBAL ENERGY TRANSITION, who are the leading developers of renewable energy on the continent? Who are the companies to watch? Where is the space for investment?
