New York — Up to 33 million people living in poverty in Africa and Asia will gain access to low-cost solar energy by 2016 following a commitment made by solar power provider ToughStuff to the Business Call to Action (BCtA) today. The BCtA is a global initiative that encourages private sector efforts to fight poverty. The company expects to help consumers who previously relied on kerosene or biomass fuel to save a combined total of US$520 million on lower energy costs while reducing carbon emissions by up to 1.2 million tonnes by 2016.

21 February 2012 – Government policies that facilitate private sector investment in energy markets are crucial to help tap Africa’s massive renewable energy potential, which can fuel the continent’s poverty reduction efforts and put it on a path to sustainable development, according to a United Nations report released today.Experts estimate that unless stronger commitments are made to reverse current trends, half the population in sub-Saharan Africa will still be without electricity by 2030.

This article is about government policies that facilitate private sector investment in energy markets are crucial to help tap Africa’s massive renewable energy potential, which can fuel the continent’s poverty reduction efforts and put it on a path to sustainable development.  Also, half the population in sub-Saharan Africa will still be without electricity by 2030. An estimated that 1.3 people don't have access to electricity and 95% of them live in Africa. To meet the continent’s growing energy demands, the power sector in Africa needs to install an estimated 7,000 megawatts (MW) of new generation capacity each year.


I was surprise that many people in Africa still don't have access to electricity. It would be very hard for them to live in the night only if they don't have lamp. Renewable energy is a very good idea for producing the electricity. However, these machines cost a lot of money. Now they can pay less electricity bills.
