African Energy Consultancy
Led by a team of regional specialists, Cross-border Information (CbI)’s African Energy Consultancy arm draws on more than 16 years’ corporate experience of monitoring and analysing politics, projects and emerging trends.
CbI plays an active and participatory role in the African energy sector, working with investors, developers, operators, government officials and many other stakeholders in a variety of ways; from data analysis and publishing – CbI’s African Energy was launched in 1998 – to events organisation and consultancy.
An investment in people and knowledge
We have developed first-hand relationships with in-country associates in more than 40 African countries in order to provide reports and analyses that are balanced and accurately reflect local conditions.
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.
Our consultancy work with public sector clients – which includes substantial contracts with the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) and the Africa Development Bank-based Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA) – includes developing methodologies, and compiling and interpreting data held in both the public domain and in our own proprietary database of projects in the energy, transport and water sectors.
