Guide to renewable energy in Africa launched

June 19th, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

The energy practice of DLA Piper, a global law firm located in more than 40 countries, has launched Renewable Energy in Africa, a new guide for clients. The guide summarises the regulatory environment for renewable energy in twelve African jurisdictions, highlighting the key policy objectives for national governments and providing insight into the projects which are anticipated to deliver these goals. Natasha Luther-Jones, co-chair of the practice, says that the generation and distribution of electricity is fundamental to unlocking economic potential, while the development of renewable energy projects and innovative electricity distribution strategies are of central importance to the delivery of the economic and socio-political objectives of central governments. With more and more African governments implementing legal reforms to stimulate renewable energy development programs, there are huge opportunities for investors, developers and operators across the renewable energy sector on the continent. The guide draws on the expertise and insights of the practice’s team and provides a reference tool for anyone with an interest in renewable energy projects in Africa.
