    The organizing committee of the first Botswana Renewable Energy Expo has decided to postpone the event to 26 to 28 February 2014 to make the event bigger and better and add more value to all stakeholders.

    Last month President Obama announced a package of programs that aim to increase electricity generation and transmission in Africa. Headlined by $7 billion in U.S. government support and $9 billion in commitments from the private sector to invest in new generation projects, although details are still forthcoming, the initiative is evidence of the enormous demand in Sub-Saharan Africa for new generation.

    Less than a third of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity. Excluding South Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa has only 28 gigawatts (GW) of generation capacity for a population of approximately 850 million people. (For context, the Netherlands has 26 GW of capacity for a population of less than 17 million). With the exception of Nigeria, the five target countries have very low population densities and lower than average urban populations as a percent of the total population. In other words, dispersed populations either have no electric grid at all or have access to a grid with only meager capacity.
