Lets talk about “Power Africa”, and its goal

Power Africa brings together technical and legal experts to increase electricity access to sub-Saharan Africa.

Access to electricity is an opportunity. It’s the flip of a switch that allows a business to thrive, relief for a worried mother, and the spark that fuels the next big idea.

It’s the connection that’s needed to plug Africa into the global economy. Two out of three people in sub-Saharan Africa lack access to electricity.

Power Africa is a U.S.-Government led partnership, that is creating that connection, doubling access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa, using the rich resources of the African sun, wind, streams, lakes and natural gas, and investing in technologies that expand the grid and reach beyond power lines.

Power Africa aims to add more than 30,000 megawatts of cleaner, more efficient electricity generation capacity to the African Continent.

So far, Power Africa facilitated the financial close of 84 transactions representing 7,351 megawatts.
