Where to invest in renewables in sub-saharan africa

The objective of the project was to report a market analysis of the 49 Sub-Saharan African countries (SSA), to assess each country’s proficiency in attracting renewables energy investments, especially for wind power and solar PV. The criteria that reflect the availability of SSA countries to receive investment from private companies were identified, analysed and measured. In the analysis, all the relevant parameters were taken into account such as the electricity demand growth, the political stability, the renewable resources availability and the regulatory framework. After the evaluation of the different countries, the final goal was to present two different ranks, respectively one for wind power and one for solar PV, of the top 10 Sub-Saharan countries that are more likely to attract profitable investments for foreign energy companies.
