In 2021, the African Region recorded its best year ever, for the second year in a row. In total, 14 GW of new capacity is expected to be added in Africa/Middle East in the next five years (2022-2026), which is primarily driven by growth from South Africa (5.4 GW), Egypt (2.2 GW) and Morocco (1.8 GW) in Africa, and Saudi Arabia (1.3 GW) in the Middle East.
While wind is expected to play a role in Africa’s energy mix of the future, there are still a number of questions that the industry needs to work through.
