Ensuring that the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) and East African Power Pool (EAPP) countries have sufficient transmission and distribution infrastructure in place to enable electricity utilities to export (or ‘wheel’) power is one of the biggest opportunities offered by the African energy market at present, argues Louis Naidoo, AECOM power market sector director for Africa. AECOM’s extensive experience in this regard includes its involvement with the 2000 km regional power interconnector project that will link the Zambian, Tanzanian, and Kenyan (ZTK) electricity grids. Not only will this boost power generation and distribution within the SAPP and EAPP, it is also vital for power integration on the continent, and makes access to power for remote communities and industries possible.
