Power

Reliable and affordable energy lies at the forefront of Africa’s pursuits, to elevate economic growth and sustain the needs of an increased urbanised population.  Many African nations struggle with high costs, low capacity and constant power outages.

According to RMB 2015/2016 report, Over 55% of Nigerians do not have access to grid electricity, using costly back-up generators. Roughly 80% of the East Africa region is without electricity.  As of 2013, after is establishment of the Rural Electrification Authority in 2006, 90% of Kenya’s public facilities have electricity, however household access is at a low.

Almost 90% of Liberia’s population has no access to reliable electricity.  However, this represents an opportunity for Liberia’s advancement in hydro-electricity.  Liberia has an advantage of six major rivers; Saint John, Saint Paul, Mano, Lofa, Cavalla and Cestos River.  The rivers drain over 60% of the country’s water presenting an opportunity for investing in hydro-electricity.
