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.).

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment.
    I do think that you ought to publish more about this subject, it might
    not be a taboo matter but usually people do not discuss such subjects.
    To the next! Many thanks!!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I'd certainly
    appreciate it.
