RESEARCH SHOWS THAT 27% OF AFRICANS HAVE ACCESS TO ELECTRICITY

04 Aug

africaThe Executive Director of the African Energy Commission (AFREG) says access to clean energy supplies is crucial to a nations development and this can be achieved by finding ways to ensure that energy supplies are delivered effectively.

Dr. Hussein Eolhag said this at the opening of a 3 day Solar Energy experts workshop at the energy center at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

According to Dr. Elhag, a research conducted by AFREG has revealed that only 27% of the population in sub- Saharan Africa have access to electricity.

Dr. Elhag further warns that the challenge will worsen if the continent fails to mobilise investment towards acquiring power capacity and supplies. It is expected that the production of hydocarbons will cease in the next 2 or 3 decades.

Dr. Elhag believes the the African continent has failed to exploit the abundant solar energy.

In order for Africa to exploit the solar energy, he advocates for the African strategy for technology development model by way of concentrating Solar Power.
