Construction models for renewable plants in Africa: a flywheel for sustainable development

Renewable energy can play a pivotal role in providing competitive and clean electricity, which Africa needs in order to fully realise its growth potential. Moreover, today the opportunity to overcome the development divide strongly depends on the availability of and access to energy. Thus, renewable energy projects can be key for the sustainable growth of the economies where they are deployed, and this can be supported by policies, taking into account the environmental and social impacts, also at local level. Moreover, the private sector can further unlock renewable potential for inclusive development, in particular by implementing sustainable construction and operation models.
