Power Africa

Power Africa is a U.S. government-led initiative that addresses one of the most pressing challenges to sustainable economic growth and development in Sub-Saharan Africa: access to electrical power. Power Africa provides coordinated support from the U.S. public and private sectors to add cleaner, more efficient electricity generation capacity, which benefits residents and businesses across the continent.

In support of Power Africa, USTDA provides critical early‐stage planning to spur new power generation, and transmission and distribution infrastructure. These activities support a range of energy development and deployment from power generation to grid modernization, which increase efficiency and improve access.
