Ready to lay the foundation for a clean energy economy in Africa?
We are searching for devoted and enthusiastic individuals in Africa ready to lay the foundation for a clean energy economy that will create a new generation of jobs, reduce dependence on oil and enhance national economic growth and optimize the use of natural resources.
It is time for the Leaders & Governments of Africa to act efficiently, transparently and use the existing programs already in existence. The African Nations needs to take critical steps to transform their continent into a regional clean energy leader. How can this be done?
First we need commitment from the African Nations to allocate large investments in clean energy, implement efficient use of natural resources and promotion programs in order to leverage private investment and fostering African innovation and ingenuity. The National and Regional investments for clean energy will, if handled efficiently, be able to produce billions of US$ in clean energy projects, which in addition will attract investors in industry and tourism.
These investments can be designed to accelerate investments in clean energy projects and pull private investments onto the game field. They can be used to jump start a major transformation of African energy systems including unprecedented growth in the generation of renewable sources of energy, enhanced manufacturing capacity for clean energy technology, advanced vehicle and fuel technologies, and a bigger, better, smarter electric grid.
SEE can help to develop, finance and implement the National strategies and plans towards a clean energy economy.
