Solar Energy in Africa Possibilities & Capabilities. Edited by Mammo Muchie, Angathevar Baskaran & Daniel Ayuk Mbi Egbe


Solar Energy in Africa Possibilities & Capabilities. Edited by Mammo Muchie, Angathevar Baskaran & Daniel Ayuk Mbi Egbe


Product Description

The contributions in this edited book underscore the critical importance
of solar energy in African energy supply and the importance of developing specific and efficient technological capabilities to harness solar energy. They also demonstrate the important role of solar energy in the socio-economic development of African countries.


“In light of the rapidly growing markets for solar energy globally, the contributors to this book underscore its significance for resolving the persistent challenges of energy poverty and sustainable industrialization in the African continent. With the scope and depth of the expertise brought to bear on the topic, it is not an exaggeration to say that we are ever closer to building a solar farm that tilts in a unique way to the African sun”.
--Fumani Mthembi, Managing Director, Knowledge Pele, and Co-Founder, Pele Green Energy, South Africa

“Solar energy has huge potential to play an important role in driving economic development and social wellbeing globally. This book is a valuable resource to researchers, policymakers and civil society to understand the way solar energy could lead to socio-economic transformation in Africa”.
--Mingfeng Tang, Professor and Director, Sino-French Innovation Research Center, Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, Chengdu, China

“Despite the complexity of the subject matter, the book’s contributors have made a compelling case for applications ranging from distributed and utility-scale solar electricity to heating, drying, and cooking technologies. Equally impressively, they have done so in a manner that is accessible to entrepreneurs, policymakers, scholars, and students alike”.
--Ogundiran Soumonni, Director of the Master of Management Programme in Innovation Studies, Wits Business School, South Africa
