dc.description.abstractLack of access to energy services is one of the main constraints to economic development in Africa. Only about 31% of the population of Sub-Saharan Africa has access to electricity, and only 14% has access in rural areas. Compounding the challenge, traditional biomass supplies up to 85% of primary energy supply and accounts for 80% of energy consumption. With low energy efficiency, limited installed generation capacity, and weak governance institutions in the energy sector, energy security in Africa has become a critical concern.en
