The Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) presents its research "Bringing Power and Progress to Africa in a Financially and Environmentally Sustainable Manner," including recommendations to better inform and guide decision-making, action, and investment. Read research:

Key questions and considerations: What is the potential for renewable energy expansion across Africa? Is a Pan-African electricity transmission grid viable? What is the role of distributed energy infrastructure? How can risks associated with new infrastructure investments be mitigated?
