Energizing Finance: Understanding the Landscape 2020

Submitted by on Wed, 01/04/2023 - 04:00

The report shows that financing of energy investments continues to fall behind the commitments, which reduces the chances of meeting the SDG7 energy access targets. In case of Uganda, the report indicates that there has been a slight improvement in finance disbursements albeit at a slow pace. However, the delayed disbursements are as a result of poor project designs and inadequate coordination in project implementation.


The Energy Progress Report 2021

Submitted by on Wed, 01/04/2023 - 03:59

The report indicates progress in Global electrification rate estimated at 90 percent. This rate however, is unlikely to achieve indicator 7.1 unless the pace of growth in electrification accelerates to 0.9 percent annually.

The report further notes that regional electrification rates show different trends with Latin America and the Caribbean, Eastern and south eastern Asia achieving 98 percent electrification. On the other hand, sub Saharan Africa achieved 46 percent in the same period where it accounts for three quarters of world population without access to electricity.

The African Development Bank produces an annual survey on the performance of electricity regulatory bodies in African countries. The survey culminates in the Electricity Regulatory Index which measures the level of development in the electricity sector regulatory frameworks in Africa against international standards and best practices. The report covered 43 African countries in 2021.

The Index consists of three sub-indices:

African Energy Outlook 2022

Submitted by on Wed, 01/04/2023 - 03:53

Growing energy security concerns in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are also driving other regions to seek alternative ways to meet their energy needs, including by accelerating clean energy transitions to reduce dependence on imported fuels. This is starting to impact near term investment choices in energy supply, which could herald a faster transition in the current decade. This may increase demand for clean alternatives and accelerate spillover effects, especially in places like Africa that import most of their energy using technologies, vehicles, equipment and appliances.
