Renewable Energy R & D and Africa's Socio Economic Development

The close correlation between the proximity of the energy resources to the potential beneficiaries, coupled with the favourable supply prospects, have led to an enormous increase in interest and activity among African governments, multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, the multinational companies and individual entrepreneurs in the development and utilisation of renewable energy resources in developing countries. This increased activity has resulted in a proliferation of the number of possible technical options. Although the development work is by no means complete, a number of technologies have been demonstrated to be technically feasible and thus ready to be considered as alternatives to the more conventional sources of energy.
