Africa's new energy development is accelerating the rise
Wind power, solar and other new energy power generation with local African's growing demand for electricity, diesel power generation, and coal and gas-fired generation has more advantages compared to the rise is accelerating. 2014 wind power capacity in Africa for the first time more than 1 GW, to achieve a leap forward for the first time.
The rapid growth of wind power by driving a competitive price, while wind power can also improve energy security and price stability. Wind energy alternative to fossil energy sources will help alleviate air pollution, and air pollution problems are the biggest challenges of survival faced by some countries or regions.
According to the Global Wind Energy Council, "2014 Global wind power capacity statistics," 2014 global new wind power installed capacity of 51,477 MW. The record data installed global market to achieve 44% annual growth, but also that the global wind power full recovery from the past two years retarded growth.
It is worth noting that the installed capacity in Africa in 2014 for the first time more than 1 GW in 2015, installed capacity reached again remarkable achievements became everyone's expectations. Currently, the African market by the South Africa, Egypt and Morocco lead, but there will be more new markets to emerge in Africa, which will enable Africa in the coming years to become the fastest growing region.
According to the latest forecast of the Global Wind Energy Council, over the next three years, global wind power capacity will continue in the new holding more than 50 million kilowatts level. Sub-regional perspective, the next five years the global market will continue to be Asia, Europe and North America, mainly in emerging markets has begun to show some changes, indicating the rapid growth momentum.
African Development Bank (AfDB) economist said recently, wind power projects in Africa increasingly warming, for two main reasons:
1, investors and investment tend yuan. Wind power project originally mainly by African governments and aid partner countries to invest, there are more private-sector investors in many African countries through public-private partnerships and other financing to encourage the development of wind power projects.
2, the development of the country increased significantly. North Africa, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco early development of wind power projects; Ethiopia this year to develop the first commercial wind power project, the installed capacity of 52MW; Kenya's Turkana wind power projects are under construction, with a total investment amounting to $ 815 million, installed capacity of 300MW; South Africa for the first time allow private sector investment in wind power projects with a total amount of its first round of bidding for 28 clean energy projects amounted to $ 5 billion.
