We work with governments and companies to help find sustainable solutions to close Africa’s energy gap. We achieve these aims by providing market intelligence, industry reports and monitoring and evaluation services that support decision-making throughout all stages of the project development and investment cycle.

Our experienced and much-travelled team of regional experts can call upon an extensive network of in-country contacts as well as carry out investigative visits to Africa. This allows us to obtain critical information on challenging markets that is vital to your business.

Primary source research is supported by over thirty years’ experience of constantly monitoring African energy markets. This means we bring a ready-made understanding of the energy sectors across the continent – and the commercial, political and economic trends that impact them – to inform our research.

We also own African Energy Live Data the industry-leading database of power generation projects across the continent, allowing us to provide you with accurate and up-to-date electricity supply information and forecasts based on the actual project pipeline.

Releasing the potential of Africa’s abundance of energy sources is our aim.
Helping stakeholders convert these into reliable and sustainable energy projects is our task.
