  • Africa's Renewable Future: The Path to Sustainable Growth

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Africa's renewable energy power potential is substantially larger than the current and projected power consumption of the continent. Local geothermal, solar thermal and bioenergy resources have an important role to play in covering future heat demand. Domestic biofuels and renewable energy-based electrification of urban public transport can contribute significantly to transport needs.
