Absa Insights Power Utilities and Infrastructure

 

Consider this. Right now, despite our abundance of alternative energy sources and natural resources, there are 600 million people across Africa who do not have access to electricity. With sufficient reserves of gas, solar, wind, biomass and water, we urgently need to identify a way to rapidly harness these resources, to create an enabling environment for these projects to come online and drive economic activity.

As a bank, Absa is committed to a sustainable future for our continent through empowering

our clients to make smarter business decisions. This is why we are proud to present the third instalment of our Insights Series for 2020: a comprehensive look at the Power Utilities & Infrastructure Sector and how we are on the brink of a revolution when it comes to long-term power security.
