The opportunities of the 21st century and, in particular, the advances in information and computer technologies provide opportunities in excess of the challenges that face the continent, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa ravaged by the AIDS crisis. The strategy of development planning around the large resource power bases of hydro, natural gas, geothermal, solar, wind, coal, and PMBR technology in a resource-rich emerging market such as Africa can be a mutually beneficial paradigm in partnership with advanced economies having limited resources. Collaboration in the global power industry afforded by the World Wide Web also furthers the development of critical skill and knowledge transfer to support the vision of a robust electrical power sector throughout the continent.
