In this deck, PowerGen outlines the case for Africa’s potential for leading the next generation of power infrastructure. With limited incumbent infrastructure, significant social and economic growth, and a rapidly evolving technological toolkit – Africa is poised to lead, not follow, as the global power system architecture evolves.
In this deck, PowerGen provides and overview of the energy access challenge in Kenya and illustrates how private SPDs (Small Power Distributors) can enable faster connection of households and businesses throughout Kenya, while future-proofing Kenya’s power infrastructure with smart metering, embedded storage, and distributed generation.
PowerGen published an article in Greentech Media advocating for careful thinking about how we plan for the long-term needs of the African electricity system. The conclusion: it’s hard for autonomous (non-grid) systems to deliver significant amounts of energy.
