first_imgNew analysis shows potential for significant solar growth in Africa through 2030 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:The African solar PV market could grow to as much as 30 GW by 2030, according to a new report on the potential of 10 key countries by the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) and the Becquerel Institute, in cooperation with Intersolar Europe.The Solarize Africa Market Report points to an enormous amount of potential across the continent that has yet to be exploited, based on research focusing on South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Ghana, Algeria, Ethiopia, Angola, Namibia and Tanzania. More than 1 GW of solar capacity was installed throughout Africa in 2018, according to statistics from both BSW-Solar and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), bringing cumulative installations for the entire continent to slightly more than 5 GW by the end of 2018.“The solar potential in Africa is large, as is Africa’s energy demand, and we are optimistic about many of the markets we analyzed,” says David Wedepohl, managing director of BSW-Solar. “We estimate we would need about 2,000 TWh solar PV to fully decarbonize the energy consumption on the continent by 2040.”The report notes that total PV installations in Africa account for only about 1% of the world’s cumulative installed capacity. The researchers say that investment opportunities vary throughout the continent based on a range of factors, including political stability, solar radiation and the receptiveness of different markets to foreign investors.However, many countries will need to upgrade and expand aging and underdeveloped grid infrastructure in order to facilitate significant PV development, the researchers say.More: African nations could install 30 GW by 2030: BSW-Solarlast_img read more

first_img “He likes a little bit of attention, but that’s fine. All the guys love him. “He’s not only a great character, but he’s doing well for the team and credit to him. “The two years he has had here have been good, but there is the potential to have a better year this year if he keeps continuing to play as well as he is.” Another player Hughes does not want to lose is Phil Bardsley. The right-back is unlikely to feature against his old club Sunderland on Saturday as he has lost his place to Glen Johnson following his arrival from Liverpool. The former Manchester United defender has played just one league match so far this season and was sent off on his last appearance in the Capital One Cup against Chelsea. Hughes has been impressed by Bardsley’s attitude in training, however, and is not looking to let the 30-year-old leave the Britannia Stadium in January. “I am not really looking to get Phil out,” the Stoke manager said. “It’s important that we have that defensive cover, so a loan deal for Phil is not something I am really looking to do.” Arnautovic has scored three goals – including the winner against Chelsea – and laid on two assists in his 11 appearances so far this term. The Austrian winger, who joined from Werder Bremen two-and-a-half years ago, has 18 months to run on his contract and Hughes hopes the player will agree an extension soon. “I’m thinking about it (Arnautovic’s contract) and I’m sure Marko is,” the Stoke manager said. “We want him to stay.” Arnautovic arrived in England with a bad-boy reputation. While at Inter Milan then-boss Jose Mourinho described Arnautovic as “a fantastic person”, but added that “he has the ­attitude of a child”. And Bremen suspended him after he was pulled over in his sports car by police for speeding in the early hours of the morning before a match. Hughes has nothing but kind words to say about the 26-year-old, however. “I think his manner and his personality takes people aback initially, but once you get to know him he is very gregarious, he likes people and he likes being around them,” the Welshman said. Mark Hughes wants Marko Arnautovic to commit his future to Stoke by signing a new contract at the Britannia Stadium. Press Association Arnautovic’s form has been key to the recent upturn in Stoke’s form. The Potters endured their worst start to a season since their promotion seven years ago, but have now lost just one of their last 10 matches. last_img read more
