Africa50 focuses on commercially sustainable projects, our primary target sectors for projects are:

  • Energy, including renewable and conventional generation, power transmission and distribution, and mid- and downstream gas infrastructure.
  • Transport, including roads, airports, ports, and logistics.
  • Projects in information and communications, water and sanitation, as well as other infrastructure sub-sectors are also considered, on a case by case basis.

Africa is simply tired of being in the dark. It is time to take decisive action and turn around this narrative: to light up and power Africa – and accelerate the pace of economic transformation, unlock the potential of businesses, and drive much needed industrialization to create jobs.
