Africa, filled with many developing nations, provides the ideal opportunity for the application of renewable energy solutions and technologies. About 635 million Africans still live without electricity and demand for energy is rising rapidly. Given the lack of power supply, especially in the rural regions of the continent, the growth and demand for applications of small-scale solar, wind and geothermal technologies providing power to people and business, is rapidly expanding. The use of renewable technologies is especially useful in the further and outlying areas as it is easier to install a more cost-effective solution in order to be less reliant on transporting electricity from power plants via transmission lines, which becomes very expensive. Renewable energy has the potential to substantially assist many African countries and their people to have access to energy, essential for the reduction of poverty and to ensure economic growth.
