The Big 5: Africa’s fastest growing solar energy markets

Africa has shown great progress in the development of its solar energy markets over the last year. The continent has experienced a growth of over 1.8 GW of new solar installations, with 1.4 GW coming from photovoltaic (PV) installations, which was a significant jump from the 786 MW that was brought online in 2017. 

According to IRENA, last year’s growth was mainly driven by five specific countries: Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Namibia and Ghana. The aim of this report is to provide a comprehensive overview of the key facts and figures related to these solar PV markets.
