Energy investment in Africa is going through a boom.

Two decades of economic reform have propelled several countries into middle-income status. Sustained economic growth and a growing middle class have increased demand for power. Climate change concerns and technology leapfrogging means several African countries are home to a resurgence of interest, and investment in the renewables sector. Projects such as USAID's Power Africa programme are helping governments' efforts to develop energy infrastructure.

ARC’s political risk and compliance experts are the ideal partners for energy projects in Africa. Energy in Africa is increasingly political. Newly democratic governments battle to meet the competing demands of the electorate and businesses. In South Africa and Nigeria, the government’s ability to supply electricity has become an election issue. Businesses trying to meet growing consumer demands desperately need power. All the while governments are under pressure to meet international climate change obligations. Extra-territorial compliance laws have placed licensing and local content negotiations under increased scrutiny.

ARC has provided pre-investment consulting for several major energy sector acquisitions. Using our network of correspondents we get accurate information on regulatory bodies, regulatory processes, the licensing and award process, stakeholders, competing policy issues and key sector players. ARC helps clients identify the right people and business partners and to avoid potential compliance risks.
