5 African countries leading the way in climate change solutions

Africa has shown that it can leapfrog the technology lifecycle in areas such as phone networks and mobile payment systems.  I think it can be done with energy as well.  Africa has very good potential for decarbonised energy and proven success in areas like geothermal, wind energy, bioenergy, solar and carbon capture.  With solar, for example, the technical potential for solar PV could be as high as 6,567 TWh and that of concentrated solar power 4,719 TWh.  As you’ll see in the following pages progress is already being made and these projects aren’t just impacting countries in Africa – they are providing lessons that can be shared around the world.
