The Challenge

Energy Access in South Sudan

South Sudan is one of the least electrified countries in the world with an estimated 7% of the population with access to electricity leaving over 10.4 million people unelectrified. Even in electrified areas like Juba, the capital, the percentage of population connected remains low due to limited distribution.

In the absence of reliable electricity households and businesses must suffer without power or rely on diesel generators which are very expensive to operate given the high cost of diesel fuel and complicated logistics in South Sudan. This energy poverty critically limits South Sudan’s potential economic development and exacerbates the challenges for its people.
