POWER AFRICA FACT SHEET
The page below gives an overview of the energy sector in Madagascar, and explains Power Africa's involvement.
MADAGASCAR ENERGY SECTOR OVERVIEW
Population: 26.26 million | GDP (1): $13.85 billion
Madagascar has substantial natural resources, including hydro, wind and solar. Diesel is prominent, resulting in localized costs that can run as high as $0.70-0.80/kWh. High tariff rates result in low collection rates, and subsequent plant failures due to unfunded maintenance. The utility requires ongoing financial support. Access rates are low countrywide, and very low in rural areas. There are seafood processing areas in the south that would economically benefit from cold chain storage, if it were made available.
