    Access Power: Why Africa is the next frontier for solar energy

    Madeleine Cuff, 4 May 2016 (BusinessGreen)

    "Africa is at the "epicentre" of the global challenge to overcome energy poverty…[based on International Energy Agency data that shows the average energy use per person in Africa is around 600kWh, compared to a global average of more than 3,000kWh…[The] continent's sun-drenched lands are also a hot-bed - quite literally - for new power development…[and] the next frontier market for renewables…More power capacity has been built in the last two years in Africa than in the last 10 years...[Access Power] active in 17 countries across Africa, and has set aside $500m for investment in sustainable power projects on the continent over the next five years, with plans already in motion for new solar farms in Mali, Ghana, and Egypt…[In March, it] started construction of a new 10MW $19m solar plant in Soroti, Uganda…[Many African countries’ grids are weak but] the investment scene in Africa is buoyant…[and the continent is] being transformed from an epicentre of energy poverty, to a key market in the global clean energy revolution…” click here for more
