Today, at the World Gas Conference in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Agency for International Development's Power Africa Coordinator launched the Gas Roadmap to 2030 for sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The Roadmap outlines a plan for achieving up to 16,000 megawatts of additional gas-fired power generation in SSA by 2030.

Power Africa's Gas Roadmap estimates U.S. companies could invest in, or compete for, $175 billion worth of gas power projects in SSA, with the potential for at least $5 billion of U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas by 2030.
