SIEMENS: We Can Power 50% Of The Entire Africa Within Five Years – CEO, Joe Kaeser!!

The Chief Executive Officer of Siemens, Joe Kaeser told BBC Africa Business Report that he is of the opinion the company could increase the proportion of people who have access to electricity in Africa to 50% within five years.

It currently stands at 35%.


He told the BBC’s Matthew Davies that the company would be able to boost the percentage so quickly because electricity is now decentralised.

In the past, providing electricity meant building a big power station and a large electricity grid.

But now he says solar and wind power can be on smaller grids.
