This paper attempts to recommend paradigms to help develop and effectively share the necessary technical skills sets involved in the growing African Energy development sector represented by the various regional pools. This study is a follow up to a previous presentation focused on the opportunities the planning of these initiatives present directly and indirectly. The thesis being that African Policy makers can effectively leverage the information mass created by the planning of some of these energy development programs by integrating with various academic curricula within the framework of the growing field of knowledge management. The focus is on the South African power pool (SAPP), West African power pool (WAPP), Central African Power Pool (CAPP), East African Power Pool (EAPP) and interconnection initiatives in North Africa with ties to the middle east.
