Energy in Africa

Modern energy services are crucial to the well-being of a country’s economic and social development. There are 589 million Africans living without access to modern forms of power.

Energy poverty, the lack of access to modern energy services, has become a crisis in developing countries, and especially many African nations. Globally, 1.3 billion people are without access to electricity, while 2.6 billion lack clean cooking facilities. 95% of these people live in sub-Saharan Africa or developing Asia.

This discussion considered the efforts taking place to enhance access to modern energy services by governments, non-profits and investment groups.
