Renewable Energy in East Africa is Praised.

Daniel F Benson-Guiu

Wind

Last month we reported that Ethiopia had just opened the largest wind farm in Africa. A third of Ethiopia, the continent's second most populous nation, conducts their day to day without any access to electricity. The new wind farm has the potential to change the lives of millions. 

Ethiopia is briskly pacing towards its goal of zero net emissions from energy production by 2025, a very laudable goal!

The BBC has recently highlighted two more examples of renewables success in East Africa.

In both, here and here, the potential of geothermal energy, wind and hydro-electric energy is discussed.
