Revised in August 2018, this map provides a detailed overview of the power sector in
The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or
planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, natural gas, coal, hydroelectric, solar (PV and CSP), wind and biomass.
Existing and future transmission lines are shown ranging from 66kV to 400KV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including the Zizabona project and lines to Botswana and South Africa.
The map was originally published as part of the African Energy Atlas 2018/2019 and is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on more than 5,500 power plants and projects across Africa.
