Introduction

Energy Infrastructure has posited biggest, potential business opportunities on the planet. Green energy is estimated to supply half of Africa’s new power generation by 2040, according to an October International Energy Agency report. The potential for renewable energy development in Africa is experiencing an increase in attention lately as investors and world leaders seek a new clean energy frontier. The continent could become a gold mine for renewable energy due to abundant solar and wind resources.
