Established in 1998, African Energy is a trusted provider of consultancy, data and news services designed to support decision-making throughout all stages of the project and investment lifecycle.

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.

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 6,200 power plants and projects across Africa and the organisations behind them.
