New Markets in Sub-Saharan Africa: Myth or Reality?
2004 (English)In: Hidroenergia 2004: International Conference & Exhibition on Small Hydropower Falkenberg,Sweden, June 2004, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
Different forms of power sector reforms are currently ongoing or have been initiated in over 20 African countries, opening up possibilities for new actors. To be introduced and established on new markets, a thorough market knowledge are however necessary. Many markets in African countries are also characterised by a low purchasing power and imperfect infrastructure. Nevertheless, on a medium-term basis Swedish and other European small hydro companies should be capable of taking new market shares, mainly through utilisation of their technical and managerial knowledge and possibilities to cooperate through joint trade organisations and development organisations. These issues have been studied in a project financed by Ångpanneföreningen’s Foundation for Research and Development (ÅFORSK) and Sida’s Department for Research Cooperation (SAREC).
