Africa to lead in installed solar PV capacity with 125GW by 2030 – IEA

Time: June 21, 2022

According to a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), solar PV will lead Africa in new capacity additions, reaching a total of 125GW by 2030.

By 2030, the continent's total installed power generation capacity will almost double, from 260GW at the beginning of the century to 510GW by the end of the decade, 125GW of which will come entirely from solar panel.

The Africa Energy Outlook 2022 report estimates that over 40% of total new capacity additions between 2021 and 2030 will come from solar panel.

Renewable solar energy system will play an important role in providing new renewable energy capacity, as demand in Africa will increase by 75% by the end of the decade, from 680TWh to 1.180TWh by 2030.

In addition, solar PV will surpass hydropower as the number one source of renewable solar energy in terms of total installed capacity, nearly closing the gap with natural gas by 2030, the report said.
