The potential for hydro in Africa is both great and unexplored. Hydro Power Africa serves to critically look at the viability of hydro projects, showcase projects and realize investment in this growth sector. Hydro Power Africa aims to bring the private sector and financiers together with utilities and government representatives to allow hydro to gain traction in Africa. Only 10% of Africa’s hydropower potential has been developed. If 20 000MW could be implemented in the next 10 years, the benefits in terms of growth, employment and poverty alleviation would be enormous.
