Will the power sector be transformed in 6 years?

There is a wave of construction sweeping the continent. The construction of renewable energy generation plants.

Will this be the furture or a passing fashionable trend? Some investors have strong hope in hydroelectric dams in this regard.

But is it enough to sustain the energy needs alone? (Read on)

These maps present an assessment of how Africa’s electricity generating industry will develop in the next six years. They are predominantly based on schemes that are either under way, or have received funding, although in some cases, such as Nigeria and Cameroon, we have taken an optimistic view of the government’s stated target.

Ghana The government has plans to double Ghana’s generating capacity to 5GW by 2016. Among the schemes in progress is the $400m, 155MW Nzema solar plant, the largest in Africa. This is being developed by UK company Blue Energy. There is also a lively debate in the country about whether to build a nuclear plant.

 

Nigeria The government is targeting a massive expansion of generating capacity, from 5.9GW to 40GW. There is some scepticism about this figure, however, and observers have suggested that, given Nigeria’s record of public maladministration, it is unlikely to get much beyond 8GW. One indicator of Nigeria’s eventual success is the progress of the 3GW Mambilla Dam, a scheme first proposed in 1982. After murky negotiations with a number of Chinese firms and a meeting between presidents Goodluck Jonathan and Xi Jinping in May, a consortium led by Sinohydro is to carry it out. According to the Nigerian press, work on site is to begin in October.

These goals are a modest start to a massive energy deficit badly needed to stablise the economies of these countries. While some arelooking to expand some of the power plants using coal and other carbon releasing resources. Others are moring more towards cleaner and renewable resources.
