Fossil fuels to continue dominating Africa's energy mix through 2030

As wealthy countries go green and decarbonize their energy systems, African nations are locking in increasing greenhouse gas emissions as they strive to double energy production, with potential implications for global climate action, a new study has warned. Despite large parts of Africa being rich in renewable energy resources, fossil fuels such as coal and ...

Renewables need ‘shock’ to push ahead of fossil fuels in Africa - Moneyweb

Researchers led by Oxford University have put together a comprehensive forecast of energy developments across the African continent up to 2030. Based on analysis of data on more than 3,000 power plant projects across 54 countries, the report predicts a doubling of generation capacity in Africa over the next decade, with fossil fuel projects to represent 60% of the total. Based on this, the authors warn of the need for both the public and private sectors to change to tack to avoid a missed opportunity for renewable energy.Researchers led by Oxford University have put together a comprehensive forecast of energy developments across the African continent up to 2030.

Renewables Need ‘Shock’ to Push Ahead of Fossil Fuels in Africa

Using machine-learning techniques to analyse more than 2,500 power plants in 54 African countries, the article showed non-hydro renewable energy, such as geothermal, solar and wind energy, make up just 3% of Africa's power supply. "This study is a warning to the world that Africa needs serious investment if it isn't going to shipwreck global efforts to tackle climate change," said Mohamed Adow, director of Nairobi-based Power Shift Africa, a climate think-tank that was not involved in the research.Using machine-learning techniques to analyse more than 2,500 power plants in 54 African countries, the article showed non-hydro renewable energy, such as geothermal, solar and wind energy, make up just 3% of Africa's power supply.
