As of 2014, only 45 percent of Africa’s population had access to power supply, according to World Energy Outlook. A World Bank report puts the figure at 46.9. An analysis of WEO’s figure shows that 71 percent of the continent’s population had access to power while a paltry 28 percent of its rural dwellers could access power.
In another study published in 2016, Afrobarometer said only 2 in 5 persons could boast of reliable power supply throughout the day. This implies that about 600 million persons, the bulk of who reside in rural locations, on the continent are in need of steady power supply, International Energy Agency said.
This seemingly intractable problem is the bane of Africa’s biggest economy, Nigeria. While in smaller countries such as Burundi, Chad, Liberia, Malawi.
