African Energy Consultancy

Cross-border Information (CbI) created its African Energy Consultancy (AEC) arm to provide bespoke solutions to clients seeking answers to problems and pointers to opportunities.

Long before AEC was envisaged as a stand-alone unit, African Energy had carved out a niche in understanding questions of risk, finance and policy and had built up a formidable body of data, information and expertise concerning the electricity supply industry, and the upstream and downstream hydrocarbons sectors.

An investment in people and knowledge

Africa's energy infrastructure smallLed by a team of experienced regional specialists, CbI has developed an extensive network of in-country sources. This means we better understand the culture and dynamics of local markets and unlike many of our competitors do not have to rely on third party information providers.

CbI's African Energy Consultancy arm has worked with a wide variety of clients on policy, strategy and investment decisions.

The foundations for much of the electricity sector consultancy work we've produced over the last few years has been provided by our own Africa Power Projects Database of nearly 3,000 projects. This resource, gradually compiled since 1998 through constant monitoring of developments, was central to our recent research work for the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP).
