With A Little Help, Africa Could Become Renewable Energy Powerhouse says IEA, reports Ari Phillips at Climate Progress. The International Renewable Energy Agency recently said that Africa’s renewable energy capacity should quadruple to about 120 gigawatts by 2030 if “investors dedicate substantial flows of funds to the region.”
Africa includes some of the best solar and wind resources worldwide. Sub-Saharan Africa could provide more than 170 gigawatts of additional power-generation capacity — more than double the region’s current installations — through 3,200 “low-carbon” energy projects, such as combined heat-and-power, biofuels production, mass transportation, and energy efficiency.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
