Africa energy futures: horizon 2030

The Africa Energy Futures: Horizon 2030 report released by DLA Piper Africa takes an in-depth look at the energy transition in Africa. Analysing 21 countries, the report also forecasts challenges and opportunities that will arise in the next five to ten years. Each country was analysed based on the same set of questions and themes, allowing for comparative analysis. While major steps are being made in the decarbonisation of African countries, with 12 out of the 21 countries in this report already rely on clean energy as an important part of their power mix, many jurisdictions are still very much fossil fuel reliant. Significant differences also exist between countries in energy supply diversity and power systems which is resulting in inconsistent development across the continent.
