To meet predicted demand for health care workers in sub-Saharan Africa, 90,000 doctors and 500,000 nurses must be trained within the next 10 years. Thus, the region holds a host of opportunities for Wisconsin firms in the health care sector.
Alternative energy and storage systems are being used to make various portions of Africa’s industrial supply chains more effective and resilient, as well as control energy costs and production disruptions. Predictable power supply is critical for industrial companies to meet their production targets and timelines, and alternative energy removes the risks arising from unstable grids and poor power quality. Alternative energy projects larger than 5 MW are well represented in Africa. However, midsize to large companies are not well served in the alternative energy solutions market, and this is where significant growth is possible.
