This book provides an innovative theoretical framework for understanding electricity and capitalism in Africa, followed by a series of case studies that examine different aspects of electricity supply and consumption. Written by leading academics and activists, Electric Capitalismoffers a cutting-edge, yet accessible, overview of one of the most important developments in Africa today--with direct implications for health, gender equity, environmental sustainability and socio-economic justice. From nuclear power through prepaid electricity meters to the massive dam projects taking place in central Africa, an understanding of electricity reforms on the continent help shape our insights into development debates in Africa, particularly the expansion of neoliberal capitalism more generally.
