Majority of them being dark continent, underdeveloped, poor countries, poverty stricken, etc. However, Africa has been proving all these connotations wrong.

Africa is home to abundant resources. One such resource is the energy sector, which is directly proportional to the economic growth and prosperity. Energy fosters the possibilities of growth and overall development of a country. The African energy sector has a huge potential to get established and scatter the gleaming glitters of its inherent potential. The issue focus of this edition is energy sector in Africa.
