The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) has recently published a working paper entitled “Roadmap to Zero-Carbon Electrification of Africa,” prepared by the CCSI team under the guidance of Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, and with support from the African Natural Resources Centre of the African Development Bank (AfDB).
The CCSI study sets out a comprehensive and actionable roadmap for Africa’s zero-carbon energy transformation by 2050, with most advances achieved by 2030.
Starting from a simple and transparent model of the annual investment volumes needed to provide continent-wide access to electricity based on renewable sources, it addresses various imperatives and challenges regarding Africa’s energy planning and financing and outlines recommendations for immediate implementation of the strategy from 2022.
There are four overarching ideas in its vision for Africa’s energy future:
