Power Sector slows down Africa’s Growth
There is no doubt that the African continent is growing but the snail-speed development in the Power sector is holding back the continent from growing at the expected rate. South Africa’s ESKOM struggles with management issue; Nigeria’s PHCN still struggle despite the privatisation of the power sector; in East Africa, the growing energy needs demand huge project to meet power demand.
This episode of Invest Africa see KPMG’s Segun Sowande (Partner, Management Consulting), Professor Mosad Elmissiry (head of the Energy Programmes at NEPAD), Andrew Herscowitz (Power Africa) and Yash Krishna (MD, Cummins Cogeneration Kenya Limited) share insights on this much needed sector on the African continent.
