Independent power plants (IPPs) will play a major role in meeting the region's shortfall, given the lack of domestic governmental financing for such plans. Transmission capacity requires investment in order to handle additional generation and reduce the unacceptably high level of losses.

Renewable power and local gas resources can play a role in overcoming shortfalls, if pricing can meet requirements. Coal may struggle to find Western financing but will be needed to meet rising demand. Steps must also be taken to reduce expensive liquid fuel consumption which, while flexible, is ill suited for providing power to the world's poorest people.
