Africa: Strategy to Add 30,000 MW Across Sub-Saharan Africa by 2030.

Power Africa Roadmap (USAID)

Today at the Powering Africa Summit, Power Africa partners launched a roadmap to meet President Obama’s goals of adding 30,000 megawatts and 60 million connections across sub-Saharan Africa by 2030.

Building on the nearly $43 billion in commitments that the U.S. government has leveraged from over 120 public and private sector partners, the Power Africa Roadmap outlines how it will use those resources to add 30,000 MW by maximizing value from existing transactions, advancing new opportunities for deal flow, and increasing the efficiency of existing generation. It also highlights how Power Africa will add 60 million connections by scaling up grid roll-out programs and intensifying its Beyond the Grid efforts.
