Market intelligence

With an extensive network of in-country contacts and researchers built up over 20 years, our experienced team of experts provide independent analysis and obtain critical information on challenging markets across the African continent.

Bespoke market intelligence has been at the core of African Energy’s consultancy service for many years.

We provide developers, investors and financiers with political and economic analysis, market entry strategies and demand and supply forecasting to help you assess the risks and identify opportunities in new markets.

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver critical insights across the entire continent, even in the most challenging of jurisdictions. Our experience ranges from the major regional economic hubs of South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya through to smaller markets such as Comoros and the Seychelles. 

Our adaptable approach allows us to provide a broad range of market intelligence that is tailored to your specifications.

  • Political and policy analysis – our team of career Africanists, political scientists and industry observers are able to provide incisive analysis on a country’s political environment, energy policy direction, and governance issues.
  • Competitive landscape – our live-updated database of power projects means we can provide you with detailed information on key projects and actors in the sector.
  • Demand and supply forecasting – our independent projections are based on the actual project pipeline and give you a clear picture of both the opportunities and threats to your investment.
  • Pricing information – knowing where your project fits in to the merit order is key; we provide our clients with tariff information giving you critical insight into the competitiveness of power generation projects.
  • Payments risk – by analysing the financial workings of the energy sector, assessing the credit worthiness of state utilities and providing critical financial and payment risk reporting, we can help you mitigate these risks.
