Energy plays an important role in our daily activities, whether for leisure or work, its impact is unambiguous. At TAPI, our work focuses on understanding the issues and challenges that constrain provision or adequate and reliable energy especially in economic activities.
Although the problem of electricity supply across Africa is well known, the approach adopted at TAPI looks at energy from a broad perspective. This stems from the fact that inadequate attention is given to energy outside of electricity production and transportation. We look at different types and quantities of energy necessary to increase productivity, factor utilisation and expand key sectors of the economy as integral part of policy analysis and formulation of appropriate measures for increasing economic growth and job creation.
