This e-book offers an cutting edge theoretical framework for figuring out electrical energy and capitalism in Africa, by means of a sequence of case stories that learn diversified elements of electrical energy provide and intake. The chapters concentration totally on South Africa as a result of its dominance within the electrical energy industry, yet there are vital classes to be realized for the continent as an entire, no longer least as a result competitive enlargement of South African capital into different components of Africa to increase and regulate electrical energy. Africa is experiencing a renewed scramble for its electrical energy assets, conjuring up photographs of a recolonisation of the continent alongside the ability grid.
Written by means of major teachers and activists, electrical Capitalism bargains a state-of-the-art, but available, review of 1 of crucial advancements in Africa this day - with direct implications for well-being, gender fairness, environmental sustainability and socio-economic justice. From nuclear strength via pay as you go electrical energy meters to the big dam initiatives occurring in critical Africa, an realizing of electrical energy reforms at the continent is helping form our insights into improvement debates in Africa particularly and the growth of neoliberal capitalism extra generally.
