Oxford Energy Podcast – Opportunities for Gas in Sub-Saharan Africa

In the power generation sector, the competition between gas and coal, at least for the fossil fuel share, can be intense in many countries.  However, there are some areas of the world where there is little or no coal fired power generation and the principal means of generation is oil and/or hydro. Many of these countries are in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this podcast David Ledesma interviews Mike Fulwood, Senior Research Fellow at the OIES, to discuss his recent paper “Opportunities for Gas in Sub-Saharan Africa”.  The discussion centres on those countries where gas might displace oil in the generation mix and the prospects for gas to contribute to the electrification of the region alongside renewables. The development of new domestic gas reserves in East Africa especially is likely to contribute to growth but there are also a number of countries looking to import LNG as a more economic and greener option than oil.
