Power Africa Annual Report:  Fourth Year in Review

Now in its fourth year, Power Africa is laying the foundation for sustainable economic growth in Africa while creating opportunities for American businesses as it makes progress towards its goal of increasing installed generation capacity by 30,000 megawatts (MW) and adding 60 million new electricity connections by 2030. 

Since its inception, Power Africa has facilitated the financial close of 80 power transactions valued at more than $14.5 billion, and expected to generate more than 7,200 MW of power in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, Power Africa has facilitated more than 10 million electrical connections, bringing electricity to more than 50 million people.

The report also highlights the role of women in Africa’s power sector, chronicling the contributions of select members of Power Africa’s Women in African Power (WiAP) network. It includes an executive letter from the Honorable Irene Muloni, Minister for Energy and Minerals in Uganda, as well as profiles of women strengthening Africa’s power sector.
