Nathan Gachugi Posted about 2 years ago African sustainability and the continent's contribution to climate change adaptation Russel, Very true. Kenya for example has the potential to generate 7,000 - 10,000MWe of electricty and to this date has 198 MWe developed and all within the same geographical location. This despite a feed in tarrif of 8.5 cents per KWh and government plans to scale up to 50% of the entire electricity generation mix sourced from Geothermal power. All around Africa is waking up to the full potential of RE solutions. Wind, large hydro even solar PV sites are sprouting every where and while we have not seen much development on the front of tidal power we are seeing many new prospects ( see http://www.bellona.org/weblog/1298385449.63). What we can only hope is that the current state of political stability reigns in Africa long enough for us to see the fruition of this ambition.
