Many African governments have bold commitments to implement their sustainable energy sector policies.
Senegal and Mozambique are looking to develop efficient gas-fired generation, along with renewables, to expand their power capacity, based in part on gas reserves currently being developed in their waters.
Although gas is a fossil fuel and therefore not as clean as renewables, governments argue that it offers a relatively cheap way to scale up power generation more rapidly, with far fewer carbon emissions and reduced levels of local pollution compared to coal and oil-fired plants or small diesel generators.
