Africa has a huge demand for power infrastructure construction

Guide: with the social and economic development of Africa and the increasing demand for energy, the problem of power shortage is becoming increasingly apparent. According to the United Nations estimate, Africa's power generation accounts for only 4% of the total global power generation. Nearly 500million Africans have no access to electricity so far. If effective measures are not taken, there will be no electricity available in 20 years

with the development of small, disorderly and poor power battery enterprises in Africa and the increasing demand for energy, the problem of power shortage is becoming increasingly apparent

according to United Nations estimates, Africa's power generation accounts for only 4% of the total global power generation. Nearly 500million Africans have no access to electricity so far. If effective measures are not taken, the population without electricity may increase by 100million in 20 years. Rural areas in Africa are seriously short of electricity, and a considerable number of rural residents are still using firewood for cooking and heating; In some urban areas, due to the old power facilities, various faults often occur, and the tense situation of power supply is also worsening; In South Africa, which has the largest power generation in Africa, by the end of April and March this year, about 3million households had not been powered on, and the power demand in South Africa is expected to double in 20 years

the main reasons for the power supply shortage in Africa are: the power supply system of some countries has been damaged in regional conflicts, and the management and maintenance of power supply facilities are poor; Lack of investment in power infrastructure; Some countries that rely on hydropower are troubled by insufficient water

utilization status and demand of packaging and other industries

many countries in Africa are actively strengthening the construction of power infrastructure, planning or implementing plans to expand power supply. South Africa is expected to invest 800 billion rand in the next few years for the construction of energy infrastructure, the repair and expansion of operating power stations, and the construction of six new large-scale tests with high repeatability; The latter is a cheap power station; The Ugandan government is conducting research on the overall planning of hydropower development, actively developing hydropower and strengthening the construction of thermal power stations. In the future, the investment in power infrastructure in Africa will be greatly increased to break through the energy bottleneck restricting economic development
