Solar and Wind Zones in East and Southern Africa

This map shows areas of identified high potential for Solar Photovoltaic (PV), Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), and wind development divided into large contiguous areas called "zones," across East and Southern African regional Power Pools. For each zone identified, multiple siting criteria were estimated, including the total and component levelized cost of electricity (LCOE), average capacity factor, distance to nearest grid infrastructure, distance to the nearest load center, average population density. ...

Africa Power Sector: Planning and Prospects for Renewable Energy

AFRICA POWER SECTOR: Planning and Prospects for Renewable Energy SYNTHESIS REPORT Acknowledgement The main body of this report is based on six previously prepared studies on the prospects for renewables in Africa. One addresses potential for renewables in the continent as a whole, and that information was used in the other five, which address regional prospects for deploying renewables (West, Southern, Central, East, and North, in the order of publication date). IRENA prepared these six reports ...
