10 Renewable Energy Projects Changing Lives In Africa

In many African countries a majority of the population do not have access to electricity and only rely on charcoal and wood, which are major environmental pollutants.

According to the World Bank, less than 30 percent of people living on the continent have access to electricity and the ones who have, don’t have it regularly due to chronic power shortages after years of underinvestment and mismanagement.

But in recent years several African governments have embraced renewable sources of energy that are also cheaper than hydro-powered electricity to help fill the energy gap for their citizens.
