Research and Markets: Green Energy in Africa

Research and Markets (
has announced the addition of the “Green
Energy in Africa” report to their offering.

With fluctuating prices of oil and gas and the globaleconomic slowdown
in 2008 and 2009, many African nations have further delayed the
assessment of their renewable energy potential. Going forward, the
African electricity sector requires reform, including the further
introduction of Feed-in Tariffs, government ownership of transmission
systems reduction, and improved third-party access.

Features and benefits

Achieve a comprehensive understanding of how Africas market trends and
legislation are influencing the development of the renewable energy

Assess the emerging trends in renewable energy technology wind power,
solar power, hydropower, geothermal, and biomass capacity and

Quantify value and volume growth potential in Africas electricity
market and in electricity generation technology type.

Understand the main issues affecting the general electricity market
and renewable electricity in particular.

Predict the key growth areas in Africas renewable energy industry.


Due to the rising population and subsequent increase in demand for
electricity in Africa, there is an emerging global interest in entering
the African renewable energy market to make use of the abundant
available resources such as wind power, solar power, hydropower,
geothermal, and biomass.According to the US EIA, there is a large volume
of unutilized wind power potential in the African continent, which will
be exploited in the future. Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, and South Africa
lead the acceleration of wind power capacity and generation growth in
Africa. Small hydropower is set to grow in rural Africa.Africa has large
solar power generation potential which interests Europe in terms of
investment potential. Within areas of Sahara desert CSP technology can
be deployed through the Desertec Industrial Initiative (DII). The DII
aims to increase electricity demand across North Africa and Middle East,
while also targeting that 15% of Europe’s demand.
