Abstract: Power problems which are characterized by serious power shortage,low electricity rate,expensive electricity price and poor power supply stability have been a serious constraint to the economic development of African countries for a long time. Because of the clean and efficient characteristics of nuclear energy and the abundant reserves of uranium in Africa, Egypt, South Africa and many other African countries have launched their nuclear power development plans. However,combined with the analysis of the development process of African nuclear industry,many problems, such as structural abnormalities, the lackness of independent development capacity,the lackness of nuclear safety management and the shortage of security environment, can been seen, so that it is difficult to make a breakthrough development in African nuclear power industry. Power infrastructure construction,policy reform and international cooperation are the key issues to solve the power shortage problem of African countries.
