Power Africa Books

Understanding Power Purchase Agreements

Understanding Power Purchase Agreements is the first book in a series developed in coordination with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) and the African Development Bank's African Legal Support Facility (ALSF). The book is designed to help Power Africa partners master the expansive, and often confusing, universe of financing options for power project development.

Understanding Power Project Financing

Understanding Power Project Financing is the second book in a series developed in coordination with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) and the African Development Bank's African Legal Support Facility (ALSF) again brought together a group of world-class experts to draft the second handbook in Power Africa's "Understanding" series, Understanding Power Project Financing . This new handbook is intended to provide decision-makers with an overview of the structuring of private investments and financing for power projects and insight into the important supporting role that governments play. The project financing handbook was drafted using the same Book Sprint method as the first Power Africa handbook, which allowed our diverse group of contributors from African governments, development banks, private banks and leading international law firms, all whom contributed their time on a pro-bono basis, to complete the handbook in only five days. Version 1.1 of the handbook is available here in both PDF and EPUB format. The French version of the handbook is available here in PDF. The handbook is published under the Creative Commons License.

Understanding Natural Gas and LNG Options

Understanding Natural Gas and LNG Options was developed in coordination with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) and the African Development Bank's African Legal Support Facility (ALSF). This handbook is intended to inform decision-making to develop natural gas. It does not promote any specific business model, but rather promotes better understanding of the stakeholders' shared aims in developing natural gas and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects.
