Chain effect: industrial energy policy in Africa in an era of captive power - aligning energy policies with industrial development goals in developing economies
EnergyNet has published a new report exploring the need for captive power producers to find a way to co-exist with the grid. The Chain Effect: Industrial energy policy in Africa in an era of captive power – a case study of Ghana & Kenya report asks how can nations achieve their industry goals if their energy policy do not align? A number of countries within the sub-Saharan region utilise the blueprint of industrial goals. The idea goes that in order for developing nations to grow their economies they need to manufacture their own goods which will provide cheaper goods for consumers, encourage exports and reduce imports. Ultimately, this will increase employment, income and the overall strength of the economy.
