Proposed Projects on Sustainable Energy
Presently, the major energy resources in Africa include oil, gas, coal, nuclear and hydro-power. Other potential energy resorces on the continent include bio-energys, solar, wind, geothemal, ocean currents and tidal waves. Despite the enormous energy potential in sub-Saharan Africa, about 75% of its polulation has no access to electricity. Energy being essential for poverty reduction on the continent, ICSU ROA has developed two projects to address this challenge.
Project SE01: Development of Energy models and scenarios
Project SE02: Increase in access to high quality, reliable and affordable energy in a sustainable manner: Renewable Energies - Bio-energies
