- Africa is gradually shifting from traditional hydropower plants to solar PV to ensure energy access to all and support sustainable economic growth. The key factor driving this trend is substantial cost reductions in solar PV equipment over the past few years. According to an IRENA report, solar PV prices have fallen by 82 per cent over the period 2010-19. In the past two years, particularly in Africa, there has been a decline of 30 per cent in solar PV costs.
- Most African countries have set reasonably high renewable energy targets. For instance, by 2030, Algeria targets 22 GW of renewable energy capacity, Morocco 10 GW, Libya 4.6 GW and Tunisia 2.8 GW, while Egypt targets 54 GW by 2035. Concerted efforts are being made for creating an enabling policy and regulatory environment to attract investments in this space.
- In many respects, Africa has the potential to be one of the most significant markets in terms of solar power deployment. There is a large unmet demand in the region as close to 600 million Africans do not have access to electricity. The region is also getting significant support from a large number of development finance institutions, financial donors and climate funds that are looking to mitigate the risks associated with solar projects, both grid-connected and decentralised.
- Amidst opportunities, there also exist several challenges. One of the challenges for private sector-owned grid-connected utility-scale solar projects is that offtakers are not creditworthy in many parts of Africa. Hence, there is a need for guarantees and other risk mitigation steps to secure financing for these projects.
- Another challenge pertains to the ageing transmission and distribution network in many countries. As the variable solar power assumes a bigger role in the region’s generation mix, maintaining grid resilience and security will become paramount, and utilities will be required to adopt solutions for generation forecasting and grid balancing. Apart from expanding the physical grid, African utilities are expected to invest in new technologies to make the grids more reliable, resilient, secure and smart. In several countries, the lack of cost-reflective power tariffs is a challenge. This is a key issue for solar minigrid developers that are competing with conventional players.
- Challenges notwithstanding, initiatives to add large solar power generation capacities are under way across Africa. The Covid-19 crisis has further promoted solar power as a key solution to Africa’s power crisis and to switch on a continent- wide strategy for its recovery.
- Renewable Watch and REGlobal are organising a virtual conference on Solar Power in Africa on January 20-21, 2021, with an objective to highlight the trends in the solar power development space across Africa, study the impact of recent policies and regulations, and discuss the technological and financing solutions to realise the solar targets. The conference will bring together leading project developers, EPC players, policymakers, regulators, investors, consultants, equipment suppliers and solution providers that are shaping the future of Africa’s solar power market.
