Devex: Power Africa: Taking China’s model to the next level
Rebecca Regan-Sachs, communications manager at AMGlobal Consulting, and Evan Roe, research associate at AMGlobal Consulting

“…Whether Power Africa is ultimately a floodlight or a flickering candle will come down to sustainability — creating energy not just in the power lines, but among the governments, financiers, and consumer communities that will be essential for growth. Much of this depends on moving beyond the Chinese model, creating relationships with governments and communities that fit our values and ways of doing business. With programs to improve local capacity and address community needs — as well as expanded U.S. government support — Power Africa can ensure long-term benefits for businesses, local citizens, and the continent as a whole. And that’s a truly electrifying prospect” (5/13).
