The Power Africa Annual Report released on Wednesday showed that 1,329 megawatts (MW) of new, cleaner electricity were generated in 2021 while avoiding 6.2 million metric tons (tCO2e) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The United States says Power Africa has helped more than 127 million people gain access to cleaner, more reliable electricity, including about 39 million people in the past year. There are now 5,523 MW of new electricity generation online, over half of which comes from renewable sources.


In June 2021, President Biden and G7 partners launched the Build Back Better World (B3W) initiative, a partnership to help narrow the $40+ trillion infrastructure need in the developing world.

As part of its B3W commitment, the United States announced the Net Zero World Initiative, to be led by the U.S. Department of Energy, a Power Africa partner.

Through Net Zero World, countries committed to raising their climate ambitions will work with the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories and other U.S. Government agencies to create and implement highly tailored, actionable technology roadmaps and investment strategies that put net zero within reach.
