What’s the State of Solar Equipment Import Trade in Africa?
-
"As regulators and the private sector rally to optimize #solarpower’s ability to expand #energyaccess for markets such as #Nigeria and #Kenya, further market sanitization and levers would be expected. Especially those geared towards an enhanced and de-risked product import market, which seems to be the best option in the absence of significant local technological and manufacturing capacity. "
