Many African governments are under immense pressure to improve the quality and reliability of electricity supplied within their respective countries. At the same time, however, governments face major constraints in finding suitable financing options and profitable business models that will ensure quality services in the energy sector. The growing pressure on the energy sectors of various African countries is primarily a result of the following 3 factors: non-performing revenue generation systems, aging infrastructure and a lack of finances available to fund new projects. The power sectors in African countries are monopolized by a single public utility responsible for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The continuously increasing load being placed on public utilities and the need for private sector investments have highlighted the imperative need for energy sector reforms that will present an enabling environment for Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and subsequently create the opportunity for a healthy and competitive energy sector to flourish in Africa. For this study, we have looked at such reforms in South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Nigeria, to understand the role that IPPs have played in each country in terms of power generation, investment and overall structure of the power sector. Initially, this study will discuss the drivers and restraints to IPPs in Sub-Saharan Africa. Next, this research will provide an overview of the power sector and move on to discuss the impacts and outcomes of energy sector reforms, outline the contribution of IPPs and analyse the retail tariffs and licensing requirements for IPPs across each region. Lastly, this study will look at the investment opportunities that can be and have been created by the proliferation of IPPs in each region. With many countries unbundling their power generation and distribution sector, the market environment can now be easily regulated by governments and so the quality of service is expected to be improved significantly.--BEGIN PROMO--

The liberalization of electricity markets and increasing distributed energy resources have a major role in driving the growth of demand response. However, lack of standardized procedures and absence of incentives deter the market growth in most countries in the region. Australia and Singapore are other notable countries that are aiming to establish an effective DR system in the electricity markets. Countries such as Japan, Australia, and Singapore are still testing the impacts and feasibility of demand response. However, after 2020, the market is expected to grow strongly with the introduction of demand response for ancillary services in the power sector. Liberalization of the electricity sector is a major drive for demand response market in the region. Besides, aggregation of distributed resources, energy storage system installations are offering opportunities for demands response. Most countries in the region are test trialling demand response to understand the economic benefits of it to evaluate the necessary incentives to be proposed to promote customer participation. Demand response requires interoperability of DRMS, connected appliances or equipment, network operation center, and so on. This requires these components to be standardized to ensure effective communication between them. Lack of standardization hinders proper adoption of the technology and deters demand response growth. Key Asia-Pacific markets include South Korea, Japan, Australia, and Singapore. South Korea is leading the path with 3.88 GW in 2017. Emergency demand response constitutes the majority (approximately 70%) of the total demand response market. The Japanese, Australian, and Singaporean markets operate primarily in this model. Implicit DR pricing models can be expected to become popular during the next 5 years. With the integration of more resources under DR aggregation model, cloud-based DR or SaaS model is expected to become popular. This would make the integration of residential resources to the cloud much easier. Besides, DR emerges as a secondary revenue model for energy storage systems, which were installed for power quality improvement, renewable energy fluctuation mitigation, and so on.--BEGIN PROMO--
