Data collection and analysis has been central to African Energy's work since it was established in 1998.

In September 2017 we launched African Energy Live Data, an innovative online database featuring continually updated and verified data and profiles on more than 6,500 power plants and projects across Africa and the organisations behind them.

The newsletter is editorially independent, funded purely from subscription revenue and has been produced by a team of experienced staff journalists and consultants since 1998.
