Africa’s Green Transition. Where will the Power Come from?
• Will state off-takers step up to the plate or will they be overwhelmed by the age-old conundrum being, if the IPPs build the generation and the state off-taker guarantee the offtake, will the demand follow?
• Should African governments hedge their bets and allow private offtake and distribution or is this a poisoned chalice that will simply create two classes of consumers – those that have the financial muscle to bypass the state offtakes and those that will be forced to rely on poorly managed, insolvent state corporations?
