You write that Africans face some of the highest power costs in the world, but is that for electricity from a power company (often not available) or the cost for back-up diesel generators? Back-up power runs several times a cost-recovery tariff. The Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostics (AICD) did a good job of showing how small markets with an inherently high cost structure would benefit from the economies of scale presented by the regional power pools.
