Africa is making strides in RE capacity and utilzation although the growth and plans differ between the major regions of the continent.
Good news is From 2019 to 2020 alone, solar and wind capacity increased by 13% and 11%, respectively.
- In 2020, 9% of all energy generated in Africa came from renewable sources, reports Statista.
- North Africa is the current leader on the continent in terms of renewable energy capacity.
- While Southern Africa is lagging behind, with just over 4,000 MW capacity.
- When all under-construction projects are completed, Central Africa’s capacity is set to more than double.
That would be very good for the continent and for the world!
