Infrastructure holds the key to development in Africa but there has been limited success in meeting the challenge. At Genesis Analytics we offer the tools and expertise to strengthen infrastructure planning, identify sources of finance, and enable project development efficiently and effectively.
The development of infrastructure in South Africa often relates to key regulated sectors such as energy, which includes electricity, piped gas and petroleum pipelines. Genesis’s regulatory economics expertise in policy and regulatory design, regulatory accounting, and tariff determination is often an essential element in understanding and implementing infrastructure projects in these sectors.
