Renewables are a highly competitive alternative
Over the last years, electricity prices have significantly increased. Meanwhile, the costs for renewable energy systems have stabilized at a remarkably low level. At the end of June 2019, various American media releases stated that the U.S. receive more electricity from renewable energies than coal – a big step for an industrial nation. But why seems such a development impossible for a continent like Africa? Although the renewable energy use is increasing year by year, fossil energy still dominates the electricity sector.
