How to know which form of Renewable energy is best for you

  Renewable energy is energy obtained from non-finite or non-exhaustible natural resources on the planet, such as wind and sunlight (solar). Solar energy is produced by capturing sunlight’s radiant energy and converting it to heat, electricity, or hot water. Solar cells are used in photovoltaic (PV) systems to convert direct sunlight into electricity. One of […]


A mini-grid is a self-contained power system or an integrated local generating and distribution system with an installed capacity of less than 1MW that can serve multiple end customers while remaining independent of the national grid. A mini-grid can provide reliable and affordable electricity in remote areas where population density is insufficient to justify connecting […]

Batteries and energy storage- the dynamics for Africa’s commercial sector

Energy storage systems (batteries) have become an important component of sustainable renewable energy systems. The ability of renewable technologies, such as solar, to store energy during periods of low demand and release energy during periods of high demand, allows technology to be successfully integrated into energy infrastructure. To address this demand, battery technology has progressed […]


Africa now has more than one-sixth of the world’s population, but it produces only 4% of the world’s electricity. Three-quarters of the continent’s energy use is accounted for by South Africa and the countries north of the Sahara. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA, 2019) about 600 million Africans do not have access to electricity, […]
