Africa stands on the brink of a renewable energy revolution, poised to harness its abundant natural resources and leap into a sustainable future. With over 60% of the world's best solar resources, vast wind and hydropower potential, and a wealth of critical minerals essential for clean technologies, the continent possesses unparalleled strengths to drive a green transition. Recognizing this immense opportunity, African nations have set an ambitious target to increase renewable energy capacity from 56 GW in 2022 to 300 GW by 2030. This bold vision promises to electrify millions, catalyze economic growth, and position Africa as a global leader in combating climate change. The continent is gearing up to unleash a renewable energy transition that could reshape the energy landscape for future generations.

Wind energy is a rapidly growing renewable electricity source, playing a crucial role in the global energy transition. Both onshore and offshore wind are harnessing the power of wind via arrays of wind turbine generators (WTGs) to generate clean, sustainable power on an increasing scale.

Offshore wind farms offer higher generation potential compared to onshore projects, primarily due to the increased size of turbines and the scale of arrays. To maximize the role of wind power in the clean energy transition, a balanced approach leveraging the strengths of both onshore and offshore wind is crucial. Onshore wind remains a necessary and cost-effective option, while offshore wind has immense untapped potential to generate large amounts of renewable electricity. By strategically deploying both onshore and offshore wind, the world can harness the full potential of this abundant and clean energy source.

Renewable energy has experienced explosive growth, becoming one of the world’s largest industries, even surpassing Oil & Gas. Many major companies have emerged from the green energy revolution, with hundreds of companies playing pivotal roles in the energy transition. The largest companies in the industry are project developers, renewable energy investors, and financial, technical, or legal advisory firms.
