    Sub- Saharan Africa, a region know for its significant wealth in natural resources is amongst the fastest emerging markets in the world. But fall well short from other similar growing markets when it comes to economic prosperity. Electricity plays a very crucial role for economic growth. Infact, there exists a direct correlation between economic growth and electricity supply and if Sub-Saharan African countries needs to see faster economic growth, then they must focus on developing its power sector. There are three aspects  of power sector supporting national development of any economy – availability , accessibility and affordability. In case of Africa, accessibility is a major concern. It is pertinent to note that only 35-40% of the total population in Africa has access to electricity. A primary cause for such poor quality of supply and low electrification rates lies with weak power networks. Addressing these challenges will require new approaches to development and funding into power transmission sector of the country. Since, a large funding gap is already affecting the Sub-Saharan Africa’s power sector, this development cannot be done by country’s public sector alone and hence brings a great opportunity for scaling up the private participation and investments from the private channels.
