New African Energy site live

CbI is pleased to announce that the redesigned African Energy site is now live.

Through a range of consultancy services and its fortnightly subscription-based analysis, African Energy provides market intelligence to support decision-making throughout all stages of the project development and investment cycle.

Our work draws on two decades of corporate experience monitoring and analysing energy markets, politics, projects and emerging trends throughout the continent.

Data collection and analysis has been central to our work since we were established in 1998 and we can call upon an extensive network of in-country researchers and associates in over 40 African countries for intelligence.

People choose our consultancy services for our unique mix of data analysis coupled with a inherent understanding of investment flows and African polities, underpinned by one of the most credible databases on Africa’s power sector.

Features of the new site include

  • Responsive to smartphones and tablets
  • Greater detail of African Energy consultancy services and capabilities, including case studies
  • Improved archive search function for all articles and maps published since February 2008
  • Further reading links to complement new and recent articles
  • A news archive that can be filtered by country/region and/or sector - with tabs providing easy access to top articles (Featured), maps, tenders, consultancy case studies, events, African Energy Views and an 'all articles' feed
  • Clearly marked 'Free' content including maps, articles and African Energy View editorials

For our subscription-based African Energy news and analysis, annual sector products have been launched covering a choice of power, renewables, upstream, downstream and gas.
A standard annual subscription provides full access to all published content since African Energy's first issue in March 1998 plus new issues emailed directly to you in pdf for the duration of your subscription

About African Energy

African Energy is a UK-based business intelligence provider managed and owned by CbI.

Established in 1998, African Energy was initially a printed newsletter conceived by CbI, under contract to the Financial Times Energy group and later Platts, to provide an independent source of news and analysis of Africa's energy industries. Purchased by CbI in a 2003 management buy-out, our experienced editorial staff oversaw the transition of the title into a provider of consultancy services, while managing the evolution of the original newsletter into electronic formats, creating the widely praised African Energy Atlas and pioneering an Africa-focused political risk roundtable series, AfricaHardball.

Under CbI’s ownership, African Energy has forged a reputation for high quality cartographic resources, showcased through the African Energy Atlas, and a projects database that has been central to much of our consultancy work. Our consultancy clients include the African Development Bank-based Infrastructure Consortium for Africa, the Africa-EU Energy Partnership, major corporates (including banks, power developers and oil companies) and clients with a range of niche interests.
