The Renewable Energy Transition in Africa

The report, The Renewable Energy Transition, explores how African countries can achieve universal energy access within the 2030 Agenda timeframe and identifies four areas of action:

  • Promote access to energy;
  • De-risk and promoting private sector investments;
  • Strengthen and modernise the grid;
  • Support systemic innovation.

The study also explores the transformational potential of the electricity sector in five African countries: Ghana, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Rwanda and South Africa.

The report was jointly prepared by Germany's KfW Development Bank, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
