World Bank urges innovation in energy sector

THE World Bank has called for innovation in power generation to narrow the electricity gap that has continued to haunt Zambia and sub-Saharan Africa.
World Bank chief economist Albert Zeufack said as Zambia and sub-Sahara Africa continue to experience electricity challenges, innovation and diversifying to sources such as solar, will go a long way in narrowing the energy gap.
According to the latest World Bank Africa Pulse report, the region’s household electricity rate averaged 42 percent in 2016 with access rates among urban households being about 71 percent while rural households only account for 22 percent.
