Few African Nations Will Achieve Universal Access To Power By 2050


As Tanzania struggles to curb power shortages, an expert has said the current trend indicates that less than 40 per cent of African countries will achieve the universal access to electricity by the year 2050. A US expert from the GE Intelligent Platforms, William Pezalla, revealed this at a public talk on energy sector held in Dar es Salaam yesterday. It was attended by experts from the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco), Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (Ewura), Tanzania Electrical and Mechanical & Electronics Services Agency (Temesa).
