Revised in December 2018, this map provides a detailed overview of the power sector in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, coal, other thermal, hybrid, hydroelectric, solar (PV and CSP), wind and biomass.
Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 1-9MW, 10-99MW, 100-499MW and 500MW and above. Existing and future transmission lines are shown ranging from 150kV to 400kV (some 90KV and lower voltage lines are also shown). Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Guinea and Mauritania.
The map was originally published as part of the African Energy Atlas 2018/2019 and is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on more than 5,500 power plants and projects across Africa.
Access to the map is available as part of a full African Energy newsletter subscription or may bought separately for £70.
