African Countries Embracing Energy Diversity
July 12, 2017
Multiple African countries are embracing energy diversity as a means of meeting the multiple challenges for powering the continent at a domestic, commercial and industrial level.
Ghana, Kenya and South Africa are three countries where a wide-ranging approach to ensuring energy security is being taken.
“Africa has an abundance of energy resources that can be brought online rapidly and cost-effectively,” says Webb Meko, Business Development Director, Sub-Saharan Africa, Black & Veatch.
“While there is growing interest in renewable energy due to its benefits, a blended and balanced energy system, that also includes traditional energy resources and small-scale systems, will provide adequate power output for major cities and industries, while reaching consumers in remote areas. The balanced energy approach results in greater affordability, access, and a minimised environmental impact.”
