This issue’s focus is innovation, investment and risk in Africa's energy sector.

Our Africa-wide articles look at the role of gas in powering Africa’s future, geothermal power generation, and whether the African Continental Free Trade area can solve the continent’s energy challenge.

Regional articles on West Africa discuss power reforms in the region and models for private investment in transmission infrastructure.

And country-specific pieces cover land acquisition for energy projects in Kenya, methane-generated power from Rwanda’s Lake Kivu, and renewable energy in Mozambique.
