The Analysis of the Prerequisites for the establishment of the African Oil & Gas Domestic Market is a publication of the African Energy Commission (AFREC). Its inception was motivated by the fact that Africa is considered as net exporter of crude oil and natural gas while it is net exporter of related products. In addition, most of the large oil and gas reserves are concentrated in Northern and Western Africa.
The Strategic Framework for Bioenergy Data Management in Africa (AFBIDM) is a publication of the African Energy Commission (AFREC), motivated by the decision of the 2nd Ordinary Session of the Specialised Technical Committee on Transport Transcontinental and Interregional Infrastructure Energy and Tourism (STC TTIIET) held in Cairo, Arab Republic of Egypt, in April 2019, during which bioenergy was approved as part of AFREC thematic programmes.
The policy brief provides a detailed analysis to policy makers, on how Biomass is used in Africa.
It is developed using AFREC’s data ranging between 2012 to 2019, hence, guiding policy makers to take evidence-based solutions, which will enable a smooth transition from an energy landscape currently dominated by biomass, to a less biomass-dependent energy mix, should the current level of biomass consumption not be sustainable.
A report for our member states, experts and development partners to reflect on how African countries can leverage natural gas as a source for power generation and electricity supply among others.
The report uses high-level analysis to illustrate the potential impact of what might happen to oil production and consumption in Africa in 2020 and beyond. It does not make specific detailed predictions of what will happen in individual countries, nor will the identified actions and opportunities apply to all countries. The actions and recommendations proposed in this report need to be studied in details at a country level. The report aims to raise awareness to help facilitate the correct choice of action in all countries, now and in the longer term.
