primary energy consumption
Taking into account the assumptions discussed above, the resulting primary energy consumption under the Energy [R]evolution Scenario is shown in Figure 6.60. Compared to the Reference Scenario, overall energy demand will be reduced by about 30% in 2050. Under the Energy [R]evolution Scenario, Africa’s energy demand will increase from 25,200 PJ/a to 38,300 PJ/a in 2050. Around 56% of this demand will be covered by renewable energy sources.
