Estimating the Renewable Energy Potential in Africa | IRENA (2014)

Reliable energy resource estimates are the foundation of energy planning – this includes “conventional” energy sources or fossil fuels as well as renewable sources. The assessment of current and future production of fossil fuels has been undertaken for many years on different scales by using elaborate methodologies. However, comprehensive approaches for estimating national energy production potentials from renewable energy sources are still few and often not transparent. This is especially the case for developing countries. This report intends to help overcome this gap by providing indicative estimates of the solar, wind and biomass energy potential in every African country. These estimates can be used for transparent energy modelling and energy systems analysis, which is the basis for proper energy planning - download
