Known as the “sun continent”, Africa receives more bright sunlight than any other continent on earth, the strength and intensity of which is always high. Together with other geographic and climatic factors, our continent has huge climatic potential.
Renewable energy is the most economic solution for new grid-connected capacity in areas with good resources as mentioned above. And as the cost of renewable power falls, the scope of economically viable applications increases. Renewable technologies are now often the most economic solution for new generating capacity.
HAVE DEFINED RENEWABLE
HAVE SUPPORT POLICIES IN PLACE;
TWO THIRDS OF THESE ARE DEVELOPING AND EMERGING ECONOMIES
INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE
A statement was released stating that if governments were supportive, and the full range of
renewable technologies was deployed, renewable energy could account for almost 80% of
the world’s energy supply within four decades. The necessary investment in renewable
would cost only about 1% of global GDP annually.
6 DECADES OF A WARMING EARTH
In 2013, NASA published a report on global surface temperatures. The study shows that the average global
temperatures are rising over a long-term period of monitoring, and that they are unaffected by weather
extremes. In 15 seconds, the accompanying video impressively shows how temperatures have developed
between 1950 and 2013.
