In September 2017 we launched African Energy Live Data, an innovative online power database featuring continually updated profiles on more than 7,000 power plants and projects and the organisations behind them.
We can tailor our data offering for a wide range of uses including support for sales and investment opportunities, energy modelling, mapping, sector and competitor analysis or case studies.
We work with governments and companies to help find sustainable solutions to close Africa’s energy gap and support a clean energy transition across the continent.
We achieve these aims by providing exclusive power data, market intelligence, and monitoring and evaluation services that support decision-making throughout all stages of the project development and investment cycle.
