Energy Politics and Rural Development in Sub synopsis

This book deals with asymmetric electricity imbalances in one of the fastest growing economies and oil at present, Ghana, by addressing why one of the most water-rich countries in sub-Saharan Africa produces irregular access to all voters but "swinging" areas of the country. The authors ask why rural electricity initiatives targeted over the past two decades have resulted in unequal benefits for a large part of the country's population.

Using Ghana as a symbolic case study that speaks of broader regional concerns, including those of Nigeria and South Africa, this book explains the diverse nature of how energy sector reforms can not be implemented without significant political costs. In fact, the book highlights a renewed political landscape that has led to the successful but partial implementation of energy sector reforms partly driven by the Washington consensus and met with the shrinking role of the state in the wider economy..
