Africa Energy Outlook 2019
Africa has abundant renewable energy resources. Traditionally reliant on hydropower, the continent is turning to solar photovoltaics PV to bolster energy security and support rapid economic growth in a sustainable manner. With recent substantial cost reductions, solar PV offers a rapid, cost-effective way to provide utility-scale electricity for the grid and modern energy services to the approximately million Africans who lack electricity access. According to this report, installed costs for power generated by utility-scale solar PV projects in Africa have decreased as much as 61 per cent since to as low as USD 1. The report shows that mini-grids utilising solar PV and off-grid solar home systems also provide higher quality energy services at the same or lower costs than the alternatives.
The stage is set for a new wave of dynamism among African policy makers and business communities, with falling costs of key renewable technologies opening up new avenues for innovation and growth. Chief among the challenges is providing universal access to reliable, modern, affordable and sustainable energy. It also explores how the rise of consumerism in Africa might affect global trends. Growing urban populations mean rapid growth in energy demand for industrial production, cooling and mobility. With the growing appetite for modern and efficient energy sources, Africa also emerges as a major force in global oil and gas markets.

Solar in the Sudan. The cost of grid power is so high in places like Nigeria that companies are investing in systems that combine solar PV and battery energy storage with diesel generators, which may be considered a stepping stone towards development of mini- or microgrids. This is the configuration that most solar vendors in Nigeria use today to promise reliable electricity at a lower cost than what customers would spend on diesel alone. Battery energy storage is often required to run a hybrid, solar-diesel power system, Kawahara pointed out. This is tiny compared with an estimated
capacity and market volume, but also with regard to local industry and PV business development. The paper concludes by drawing attention to particular factors.

C&I Solar Market Poised For Faster Growth in Sub-Saharan Africa
The global solar power market size was USD Solar power is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the United States U. Developed and developing countries across the globe are strongly promoting solar as an alternative to conventional energy sources and are hence positively influencing this market. In most of the countries across the world, the renewable sector is largely dependent on imports from other regions, mainly China. Developers of solar projects in India are concerned about project delays due to the initial slowdown of manufacturing in China, followed by a lockdown in India. Furthermore, major solar equipment suppliers have observed production delays due to COVID, resulting in a huge backlog for fulfilling orders. For example, in July , the Government of Seychelles has confirmed that the construction of a floating solar PV power plant will be delayed owing to concerns surrounding the COVID pandemic.
