Sub-Saharan Africa is grappling with significant equity challenges, demanding urgent improvements in energy access, affordability and a fair energy transition, according to a new World Economic Forum (WEF) report published June 19, 2024.

The 14th edition of the Forum’s report Fostering Effective Energy Transition 2024, created in partnership with Accenture, highlighted these issues. Despite the challenges, the region demonstrates the strongest growth in Energy Transition Index (ETI) scores, driven by enhancements in energy access and affordability.
