The developing nations of Africa are popular locations for the application of renewable energy technology and clean power generation projects are moving swiftly forward.
The investment environment for these projects, however, are extremely complex and should be understood fully in order for projects to achieve success.
Christopher Clarke, Founding Partner of Inspired Evolution Investment Management (IEIM), presents a case study on investing in these types of projects in Southern Africa, highlighting key pointers for enabling the investment climate, key sector challenges, and investment risk mitigation.
Mr Clarke further discusses the attraction to low-risk, superior-performing, global-proven technologies that are economically and operationally mature and explains the outlook for hydropower, solar and onshore wind technologies. Download his case study here.
