The quest to power Africa

A quite illustrative image of how is the relation between electricity generation and population around the world:

"In terms of population and land mass, Africa is the second largest continent in the world, trailing only Asia. But, amazingly, a majority of the billion people living on the continent survive every day with little to no access to electricity. In the midst of economic, social, and geopolitical turmoil, many of the poorest nations in Africa are unable to scrounge up the money, resources, and general know-how to bring electricity to their people."
