Energy Access Scenarios to 2030 for the Power Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa
This report examines the growth rates of energy infrastructure and the rising demand in order to find a path to universal energy access by 2030. According to the report, the annual growth rate required to meet this goal is around 13%, which is substantially higher than the historical growth rate of 1.7%. The report outlines energy planning techniques currently in use and some new strategies and shortcuts that can make the process faster. It concludes that to spur the large growth required to reach the universal energy access goal, a few large projects like the 40-gigawatt Grand Inga hydroelectric project must be started so markets can gain momentum.
