Data collection and analysis has been central to African Energy's work since it was established in 1998. A new African Energy Live Data service was launched in September 2017 featuring more than 4,700 power plants that are operational, planned, or under construction, nearly 4,000 organisations and more than 140,000 data points on everything ranging from fuels and technology to shareholders, financing and background information.
Data is sourced from across Africa – tapping into an on-the-ground network in more than 40 African countries – and is subjected to the same rigorous editorial and verification processes that have driven African Energy's consultancy and newsletter reporting and analysis over the last two decades.
