Low-carbon Africa: leapfrogging to a green future

1st November 2011

Topic(s): Economics, Renewables

This report presents the case for a low-carbon Africa that is able to deliver clean and sustainable energy to millions of energy-poor people across the continent, and to drive a productive green economic expansion for the region to deliver a higher sustainable standard of living well into the future. Energy diversity, local resources and sustainable long-term supply from low-carbon energy will help to deliver modern energy to the people, services and industry where it is needed, and to stimulate greater economic growth and energy security in the region.
