AfrElec - Africa Power Monitor


AfrElec is NewsBase’s newest weekly report, covering the African power sector.

African economies are poised for growth but additional electricity supplies are essential as a catalyst. The continent has the resources – from fossil fuels to renewables – and investment is starting to catch up with the opportunities on offer. 

Timely, accurate, on-the-ground news and analysis is vital to investors, developers, engineers and businesses, both regionally and internationally.

AfrElec’s covers coal and gas-fired thermal power, nuclear, renewables, hydro, combined heat and power (CHP), transmission, grid and storage. It also covers the political and investment decisions needed to improve access to electricity for Africa’s expanding population. 

AfrElec is published on Wednesdays and also incorporates an extensive News in Brief section. This includes detailed and up-to-date news as it breaks, from various sources across Africa, which will be delivered in Real Time to subscribers.
