New Energy in East Africa

Huge onshore and offshore discoveries of hydrocarbons in Eastern and Southern Africa have given the region the potential to be a major participant in the global energy supply. These reserves are amongst the largest in the world - and strategically located to supply the energy-hungry Asian economies.

International investors are lining up to develop these resources - which have the potential to transform whole economies and improve the living standards of local communities.

In recent years, there’s been significant investment in major infrastructural projects such as roads, ports, bridges, railways, and power plants - further enabling the growth of supporting industries.
