Power Generation in West Africa
Unrestricted access to electric power, provides enormous opportunity, economic growth and importantly, it connects the West African people with the rest of the world. Providing adequate electricity in West Africa, to homes and businesses, remains a primary concern for the development of the West African economy.
Although, power production has incrementally increased across the region, with a goal of producing 10,000 megawatts (MW) of cleaner electricity generation capacity and 20 million new connections. Every new connection provides opportunities for individuals and businesses across the continent to achieve their potentials and overcome common obstacles of economic growth. This positive trajectory will be attainable if sustainability is effectively integrated into developmental plans, through planning that will include; domestic capacity development for infrastructure management, leveraging private sector investment and building transparent governmental partnerships with stakeholders. Additionally, implementing critical and resourceful policy reforms, will attract investment to the power sector.
