IAE highlights Africa’s role in shaping global energy trends

The International Energy Agency (IEA) highlights Africa’s role in shaping global energy trends in its Africa Energy Outlook 2019, https://www.iea.org/africa2019/. The report concludes that Africa in 2040 could meet the energy demands of an economy four times larger than today’s with only 50% more energy. Better access to energy will be key in achieving growth but it requires investments. If policy makers put a strong emphasis on clean energy technologies solar PV could become the continent’s largest electricity source in terms of installed capacity by 2040.

Decarbonising the mining sector

As one of the world's most energy-intensive industries, mining has long been ripe for a renewable energy transformation. Falling renewable energy costs, coupled with an increased determination to address environmental impacts, has led to a significant transformation in the way mine operators approach energy generation, consumption, and management. With the sector prepared to rethink the adoption of renewables into its energy mix, is mining the latest sector on the cusp of a green energy revolution?
