The British Government has launched a new campaign to help achieve universal energy access across Africa by 2030. Part of the initiative involves removing some of the barriers to installing small, self-contained solar energy kits into homes and businesses, which are operated on a pay-as-you-go system.Our UK Correspondent Natalie Powell reports.

Government officials from Africa are meeting international experts and investors at the Powering Africa summit in Washington DC to address the continent's growing energy needs. Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the world's most energy-deficient regions, but as Mobin Nasir reports, it's quickly emerging as a hot bed for innovation in the power sector. KS Energy is a power generation company based in Botswana, and it manages projects around Africa, including Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Nigeria among others. Its CEO Steve Martin joins us for a chat.

In January 2016, the Africa Development Bank launched an intervention programme called "The New Deal on Energy for Africa", designed to boost electric power across the continent. As part of the Powering Africa Dialogue Series, CNBC Africa's Wole Famurewa discussed Africa's energy challenges with Akinwumi Adesina, the President of the African Development Bank.
After one full year of having a solar panel system on the roof of my home, I share some insights into how it's been working. This is a grid-tied system, purchased through Vivint Solar, to generate up to 100% of the electricity we use each year. Now that I can run the numbers for a full year of use, I'll talk about it. In the near future I'll explain how a new radon mitigation system in our home motivated me to contact Vivint Solar again to expand our system and generate even more electricity.
Renewable energy solutions, especially solar mini-grids can be used to provide electricity to the rural areas in Africa. Such schemes can be regulated as micro integrated utilities. In Kenya where GIZ has been supporting rural electrification efforts through the implementation of mini-grids, the improvement of social, economic and environmental values in the electrified villages is immediately visible. Technical skills are however essential to address the operational challenges that solar village mini-grids require. Talek Power pilot project paved the way in the enhancement of rural electrification in the region. The project demonstrated that solar hybrid mini-grids, when properly designed are also commercially viable.
Small Hydro Energy for Africa - the Sierra Leone Case UNIDO helps Africa utilize its natural resources in order to produce sustainable energy in remote rural areas. This site in Sierra Leone is part of the Bankasoka river and is one of the locations where the construction of a mini hydro plant should begin later this year. The river - even during the dry season, has the capacity to produce 3 megawatts of renewable energy, according to international research and engineering teams. The location, through which the river flows is a major agricultural area in the North of the country.

In 2014, the Power Africa Off-Grid Energy Challenge was extended to include Ethiopia, Ghana and Tanzania. With five countries vying for prizes, the competition saw an increased amount and variety of innovation in the entries. Across these East African countries, entrepreneurs fine-tuned their off-grid solutions, resulting in a total of 19 winners.
http://www.ESMAP.org - Cleaner cook stoves and rural electrification are all part of energy projects in Senegal that include women in the decision-making process, helping them improve their lives and the prosperity of their families. This video was produced by the World Bank's Africa Energy team through the support of the Africa Renewable Energy Access Program (AFREA) and the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP). These programs supported the piloting of gender interventions in 5 countries within the Africa region - Senegal, Mali, Tanzania, Kenya and Benin. This video showcases how integrating gender into energy planning and project design can lead to results on the ground, as it has in Senegal's Sustainable and Participatory Energy Management Project - PROGEDE.
Without access to energy, hundreds of millions of people across the African continent are limited in terms of business, education and development. A budding renewable technology boom could turn this upside down. Brave Mhonie is a field co-ordinator at SunnyMoney, a social enterprise that sells solar equipment via school networks and local enterprises. Importing with Maersk Line, SunnyMoney has seen sales exceed one million solar lights in Malawi alone.

An investigation into the nuclear industry and its actions in Africa, the film examines Africa’s power needs and the consequences of using nuclear energy. Africa’s development is being held back by its poor infrastructure and undersize power plants. Countries like Uganda can produce only a quarter of the energy needed, leading to daily power cuts with a disastrous impact on the economy. Companies like French nuclear giant Areva lobby aggressively for more power plants in Africa, but how safe are these new reactors? New nuclear power plants in Africa also mean more uranium mining, contaminating the environment and endangering the local population. First Released in 2013. Content Provided by DCD Rights.

GEORGE, SOUTH AFRICA — The South African city of George is home to Africa’s first — and world’s second — fully operational solar powered airport. George Airport last September became powered entirely by solar energy. According to an AFP article used by France24, this move lowered its carbon dioxide emissions by more than 1000 tonnes. The hub runs on energy garnered by some 2,000 solar panels. These power everything from the ATMs, restaurants to the check-in desk and airport control tower. Excess energy is transferred to nearby homes and other places a local power grid. South Africa is already developing two other solar powered airports in the city of Kimberly and town of Upington. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we an...

Elizabeth Mukwimba is a 62-year-old Tanzanian woman who now has solar lighting and electricity in her home at the flick of a switch, thanks to a scheme backed by UK aid. Elizabeth has had an M-Power solar panel and lights fitted in her home by Off Grid Electric, a private sector company dedicated to providing sustainable, affordable energy to people in developing countries who aren't connected to the electricity grid. It means that Elizabeth now has lighting at home at night, which means she doesn't have to buy expensive kerosene. The money she's saved already has helped her put a new tin roof on her house. It also means her grandchildren can read and do their homework in the evening. UK aid, working with the Dutch NGO SNV, is providing support to help Off Grid Electric expand its busi...
