Access to energy is a prerequisite of human development and this is never more evident in Southern Africa.


South and Southern Africa is poised to embrace renewable technologies and smart utility services, but has challenges facing this progress in the form of legislative strangulation and the dichotomy between first and third world environments side by side.


An estimated 16 percent of the world’s population — 1.2 billion people — have little or no access to electricity, based almost entirely on the urban-rural divide. More than 80 percent of sufferers of energy-poverty live in rural areas. Because of lack of access to electricity and modern energy sources, these communities struggle to break out of the cycle of poverty.


It takes only 2500kWh per person for a country to move to the near top of the Human Development Index (HDI). South Africa is currently ranked 113 out of 189 countries with an HDI of 0.699 (Reference United Nations Development Programme Human Development Reports 2018 Statistical Report)
