The preceding Chapters have touched on various influences which affect the development of electricity consumption in different countries of Africa. On the one hand economic growth leading to higher total national output in mining, manufacturing, agriculture, transport and services presupposes a rising consumption. On the other hand this higher average output per head, of population, reflected in terms of gradually rising purchasing power per family unit, means that there is a demand for more light and power in the average home. Rising population and a growing number of family units also means that the number of potential household consumers is, increasing. At the same time public lighting; public services such as water supply, hospitals and transport systems; and commerce, administration and other special requirements of urban life all will tend to expand as the economy grows.
