Future Energy Scenarios for African Cities

At a time when cities are consuming 80% of total energy and releasing 75% of global CO2 emissions, it is clear that the success of the global climate goals largely depends on action in cities. The EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility (EUEI PDF) developed a study on future energy scenarios for sub-Saharan African cities which analyses the main megatrends that will shape the future of African cities and presents scenarios and policy choices to embark into a more sustainable path of growth.

The analysis confirms that there are three main challenges which city administrations in sub-Saharan Africa face in the transition to a sustainable energy supply for urban settlements: informality, capacity and funding. Fostering vertical dialogue between national and municipal governments to allow energy implementation locally, enabling energy action in informal settlements in urban and peri-urban areas, proving the contribution that cities can have to achieve national objectives (e.g. NDCs) as well as enhancing the capacity of local authorities to make projects ready for accessing financing, are therefore some of the key action areas needed in order to ensure a climate-resilient development of African cities.
