The African Network for Solar Energy – ANSOLE

  • Written by  Daniel A. M. Egbe

The idea to create a network on solar energy was born during a conference in Sousse, Tunisia in November 2010. The African Network for Solar Energy (ANSOLE) was officially launched in Linz, Austria in February 2011, thus it will celebrate its 5th anniversary next year in February. A conference commemorating this event is planned from the 3rd to the 6th of February 2016 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The creation of ANSOLE was inspired by the absence of any networks or other mechanisms to facilitate concerted dialogue and learning exchange among African scientists and the lack of opportunities for students in the area of Renewable Energies (RE) research.

The main focus of ANSOLE is human capacity building in RE in Africa and the promotion of the use of RE to address both climate change issues and acute lack of energy hampering the socio-economic development of the continent. This is clearly stated in its three main goals:

  • Foster technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in RE at various skill levels (capacity building),
  • Foster research activities in renewable energy among African scientists and non-African scientists who are directly involved in the education of African students and experts (capacity building)
  • Promote and encourage the use of RE in Africa (substainable development and economy, environmental protection, etc.).

    Howdy! I could have sworn I've been to this web site before but after looking at many of the articles I realized
    it's new to me. Regardless, I'm definitely pleased I found it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back often!


    I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would
    really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your
    theme. Appreciate it
