EU and Africa to Discuss Renewable Energy

The European Commission, the Africa-EU Energy Partnership Secretariat, and the African Union Commission are arranging a high-level discussion on the role of renewable resources in energy security. “One of the focuses will be to emphasise the unique value renewables can play in African and other developing nations’ energy systems by looking to the European experience underway of a renewable energy transition and the implications for energy security,” according to the event’s announcement. The discussion will take place during the South African International Renewable Energy Conference. [Image credit: Flickr, David Clarke]

International Conference on Renewable Energy Goes to Africa

South Africa is preparing to become the first African country to host the International Renewable Energy Conference (IREC). “SAIREC will provide a platform to address energy security and access,” says the conference webpage. “Under the theme RE-energising Africa, SAIREC will demonstrate why Africa is the business destination for the renewables energy sector.” The last International Renewable Energy Conference took place in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in 2013. A wide range of energy stakeholders from across sectors will gather in Cape Town to share experiences and discuss potential solutions in the upscaling of renewable energy across the globe. Interested participants are encouraged to register by 25 September 2015. [Image credit: Flickr, SAIREC]

Report on EU, North Africa Cooperation on Renewable Energy

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/8U

A European Union funded project for cooperation between Europe and North Africa in renewable energy has published a report detailing future prospects for cooperation between the regions. Bringing Europe and Third Countries Closer Together through Renewable Energies (BETTER)’s fourth policy brief provides an overview of the renewable energy landscape in North Africa, barriers to cooperation, the implementation of agreements and other issues that have arisen throughout the course of the project. The report praises Morocco’s progress thus far, but warns that more work is needed in the other countries. “In the other North African countries only few large-scale projects have actually been realized. This is due to several key barriers identified on the macro-economic, micro-economic and acceptance level,” the report states. [Image credit: Flickr/IFC Infrastructure]
