For clients seeking a detailed and informed picture of a country's future energy outlook our extensive and proprietary database of existing and planned projects throughout Africa allows us to provide a detailed breakdown of existing, planned and in-development power and gas projects across the continent.

Research carried out by our team of Africa and energy sector experts in co-operation with our network of in-country associates informs our scenario builder. These supply forecasts, typically over a five to ten-year timeframe, are compared alongside our demand projections to determine realistic supply and demand gaps over a set timeframe. 

African Energy's power and gas supply and demand forecasting has been used to advised a number of developers and financiers on the long-term viability of gas-to-power investments as well as the competitive landscape for renewables projects.
