Solar is making a major impact in Africa

October 21, 2017

 

The amount of power from solar grew by more than 50%, and has officially increased energy output globally at a faster rate than any other fuel.

 

The International Energy Agency’s 2017 report on renewables says that off-grid solar will “bring basic electricity services to almost 70 million more people in Asia and sub Saharan Africa” in the next five years. It will also lead to new business players bringing innovative payment solutions that allow low-income populations initial access to electricity services.

 

CEO of Lumos Nigeria, Yuri Tsitrinbaum, said: “This is the latest evidence that off-grid solar is providing the answer to growing energy demand in Africa. There is no other option available that can provide energy that is as affordable, reliable, and clean.”
